At the VOICE Center, we believe that everyone plays a vital role in helping to transform attitudes and actions regarding sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking. Becoming a VOICE Center volunteer provides you with an opportunity to become involved with positive change on campus while learning valuable peer advocacy and education skills. In addition, you may be able to receive paraprofessional or internship credits from some departments.
VOICE Center 101 Volunteer Training
The VOICE Center 101 Training is being offered on Saturday, February 22nd to anyone who is interested in learning more about the issues impacting our campus and how they can get involved to help create change. The training is FREE and open to all MSU students. Successful completion of the VOICE Center 101 training is a prerequisite to becoming a VOICE Center peer educator and/or advocate.
VOICE Center Peer Educators
After successful completion of the 101 training on Saturday, February 22nd, you will have the opportunity to continue the training on Wednesday, February 26th from 6-9pm to become a peer educator. Peer Educators will also be required to attend a 1 hour meeting each month to receive updates and continued education. Peer Educators will shadow several presentations during their first semester prior to co-facilitating presentations.
VOICE Center Advocates
The VOICE Center hosts an advocate training every Fall. The application process consists of a written application, reference checks, and an interview prior to selection into the advocate training program. Victim Advocates receive training to be able to provide information, crisis intervention and support services to anyone affected by interpersonal violence. Services that Peer Advocates provide include: answering the 24-Hour Confidential Support Line; meeting with survivors one on one; accompanying survivors to help with reporting, accessing medical, legal, and/or other services; talking with friends and family members of survivors about how to best support their loved one. Advocates are required to staff a weekly 2-hour shift in the office and attend bi-weekly 1 hour advocate meetings.
