Family Violence Intervention Services
Take the pledge to say No More! to domestic violence in our community. Be an ambassador and help us bring prevention programs to schools and community groups. DV Champion volunteers help EDUCATE, ACTIVATE and GET INVOLVED community members who desire change.
2-1-1 Information and Referral
During times of disaster, 2-1-1 provides callers with accurate, timely information to callers, including evacuation routes, shelters, road closures, public health orders and much more.
The 2-1-1 Disaster Pool is the group of volunteers who are contacted when disaster strikes to support the vital work of responding to the community during disaster. Volunteers are needed to provide assistance by answering disaster-specific calls and providing information to the caller. May provide clerical assistance as needed.
Potential volunteers meet with 2-1-1 staff for an initial 1 hour orientation, with periodic contact between disaster incidents. Must be comfortable with computer work. Must be comfortable with communicating by phone in a fast-paced work environment. Successful background and criminal clearance required.
Youth Program Volunteer Opportunities
Interface invites members of the community to engage with our Street Outreach Program where volunteers can support Interface's efforts to engage youth in our runaway and homeless youth services. Volunteers would participate in community outreach through attending community events with staff, assist with contacting service providers and/or identify youth that may benefit from services.
Volunteers are needed to assist with weekly Diversion Classes for youth that Interface conducts in partnership with Juvenile Probation. Classes are ordered for first time offenders and deal with topics related to the offense they were cited for. Volunteers will work at registration tables, set-up referral table, and be trained to conduct PowerPoint presentations to youth and parents referred by Ventura County Probation Agency. Topics are: Substance Abuse, Violence Prevention, Petty Theft, Graffiti Vandalism. Each youth must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Class is educational in nature.
Time Commitment: Must commit to two hours weekly. Oxnard Class Thursday evenings from 5 to 7 pm. Simi Valley Class Tuesday evenings 5 to 7 pm. If interested, please contact email@example.com
