Volunteer

 

 

Dear Prospective Volunteer,

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at New Beginning Center where we provide education, prevention and intervention programs and services to those affected by domestic violence and strive to be the community’s driving force in the prevention of domestic violence!

New Beginning Center is fortunate to have an extremely dedicated group of volunteers supporting our programs and outreach efforts. These gifts of time and talent are essential to keeping our doors open to the battered women and children in our community who desperately need our services. In lean times, volunteers become even more critical to making ends meet, and so we reach out and ask for your help. Whether you’re an individual, part of a group, a corporate team, there’s a place for you in our volunteer program.

Below is a link to our volunteer application form which includes a background check verification form for those individuals interested in our in-house volunteer opportunities. Once your application has been processed, we will be back in touch with you about opportunities that are currently available in our program.

 

Types of volunteers:

  • In-House & Administrative Volunteers
  • Community Restitution Volunteers
  • Service Learning
  • Interns (both Bachelor’s and Master’s level students)
  • LPC interns

NOTE: If you are doing community service restitution, come by 218 North Tenth Street in Garland between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. We do not accept anyone who has ever committed a crime against a person. Your application will be processed and you will receive a letter or an e-mail about the status. All community service volunteers are placed at the Resale Shop. Trainings may be required depending on your volunteer job placement.

Master’s level Counseling and Social Work students wishing for an internship at New Beginning Center should plan on a two semester commitment. Praxis and service learning volunteers will need to supply their school contract information.

 

What is the time commitment?

Most volunteer shifts are three hours. You can come once a week or every other week, whichever schedule works best for you. Just remember to truly commit and be ON TIME. We’re depending on you!
