Connect with one of our volunteer programs:

  • VIBS Ambassadors: VIBS Ambassadors are a group of young professionals between ages 21 – 30 who support VIBS through awareness activities and fundraising events.
  • Office Assistance: We are always looking for community members dedicated to our mission and interested in supporting VIBS. Office volunteers are needed to cover reception and perform clerical duties.
  • Rape Crisis Counseling Program: Rape Crisis Counselors (RCCs) are trained by VIBS and  certified by the NYS Department of Health. Training includes 30-hours of pre-service training and at least 10 hours of in-service training during the first year in the program. RCCs are on-call to respond to any Suffolk County hospital to meet with survivors of rape, sexual assault or domestic violence.
  • Childcare: Volunteers are always needed to supervise and entertain children while their parent is in their counseling session.
  • Speakers Bureau: If you enjoy public speaking and community events, volunteers are trained and then scheduled for education and awareness activities.
