Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, Inc AKA RAINN
August 12, 2012

RAINN provides a wonderful volunteer experience. The staff is incredibly encouraging and helpful. You receive a lot of training and supervision. While this work can be difficult, it is rewarding. Plus, with the emphasis that RAINN places on self care, you learn how to manage difficult sessions and learn how to identify when you are getting too involved with a specific chat. After you complete training, the time commitment is only 8 hours a month which you can do on your own time at literally any hour of the day. My experience with RAINN has been nothing but positive. If you are looking for a place to volunteer with that will really make you feel the direct impact of your work, RAINN is the place to go.
