Volunteers at The Julian Center make a difference everyday in the lives of women and children impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault. At The Julian Center, a volunteer isn’t just a volunteer, but someone who is helping to stop the violence.


A wide-range of volunteer opportunities are available to people with all different interests, skills, and passions. Small groups or individuals are needed to provide services to help make The Julian Center run. Whether you enjoy tutoring and mentoring children, leading financial classes for women, gardening, speaking to community groups about our services, or anything in between - there may be volunteer opportunities at The Julian Center for you!

Volunteer Expectations

At The Julian Center, we value the work of our volunteers and recognize the important role they play.  We strive to maintain a professional, respectful and fun environment and expect the same from our volunteers.  In order for The Julian Center to maintain our high-level of service to clients, we require the following of volunteers:
  • Punctuality/Completion: Volunteers will arrive on time for their scheduled volunteer hours and stay until their service is complete.
  • Commitment: We encourage volunteers to commit to at least 2 hours of volunteering per month (except for special events which may only require a one-time volunteer commitment).

Community Service Hours

We are happy to work with students who have been assigned community service in one of their classes. Students wishing to complete community service with us can do so at our donation center, Thrifty Threads, located at 1501 West 86th Street. If you are interested in this opportunity, please e-mail the Store Manager, Maumi VanKirk by clicking here with your availability.
