Become involved through giving your time…

Volunteers are the lifeline of The Center For Violence Prevention. The talents of our community members bring a variety of qualified people to the different programs and projects. The Center For Violence Prevention has opportunities for community members that span from construction to retail support, from facilitating life skills training to providing childcare. We've launched the "Lotus Advocacy Program" with different tier levels to show the training and progress our dedicated Volunteers under go. If you're interested in the LAP please fill out the form below or select the PDF to fill out, scan, email, or fax. Volunteers are required to fill out confidentiality agreements and a background check to ensure safety to our clients. 

Why the Lotus? 

Lotus flowers are beautiful things that grow from muddy waters. This symbolizes how enlightenment and life lessons can come from suffering. It has a life cycle unlike any other. With its roots based in mud, it submerges every night into murky river water, and—undeterred by its dirty environment—it miraculously re-blooms the next morning without residue on its petals. The flower also has a fascinating will to live. A lotus seed can withstand thousands of years without water, able to germinate over two centuries later.
