There are so many things to like about the Rape Crisis Center of Dane County. The organization is professional, extremely well run and values its volunteers. All volunteers go through 20 hours of training and observe two actual RCC crisis line shifts before they can become volunteers. I have been volunteering on the crisis line for just over a year and I have found the work to be very rewarding. The crisis line operates 24/7, and provides short-term support and resource referrals to women and men who have been hurt by sexual violence. Sometimes I may handle a call from someone who was recently assaulted, while the next call that comes in may be from someone whose assault happened years ago. The Volunteer Coordinator on staff at RCC is always available to provide ongoing support to volunteers as we cover our shifts. I also volunteer at RCC to provide a presence at community events, and I've even marched in a parade with RCC staff and volunteers! How fun is that! The staff at RCC are truly inspiring. They are dedicated, hard working women who put in very long hours. I plan on volunteering at RCC for years to come.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide it with more funding. It is amazing how much this organization accomplishes on a very limited budget. In addition to the 24/7 coverage on the crisis line, RCC provides free counseling services and educational programs for middle school and high school students. I believe that these educational programs are critical to support and expand.
