There are many volunteer opportunities available at Safe Berks. Volunteers who work directly with clients must complete an extensive 66-Hour educational seminar over an 11-week period. There are many volunteer opportunities that do NOT require this training; however, all volunteers must obtain criminal background checks and child abuse clearances at no cost to the volunteer.

Volunteers do not need the 66-Hour training for any of the following tasks:

  • Special Events, including fundraisers
  • Participating in public awareness events
  • Helping to set up awareness displays
  • Yard & garden work at our Center
  • Assisting at volunteer and health fairs
  • Assisting staff & trained volunteers with children’s activities in the Safe House
  • Donation pick-up
  • Office help and bulk mailings
  • Collecting used cell phones
  • Cooking or bringing in a meal for Safe House residents (up to 50 people)
