Here at Mosaic Georgia, our volunteers are vital members of the SART response to child, teen, and adult victims of sexual assault as well as being crucial partners in ensuring our center is run effectively and efficiently while also boosting community outreach. After receiving 30 hours of special training, Volunteer Advocates will work under the supervision of the Mosaic Georgia SART Coordinator and provide “on-call” direct-victim assistance for evening, weekend and holiday schedules. Office Volunteers will provide clerical support to the receptionist and assist with administrative duties. Outreach and Special Events Volunteers will assist and participate in Mosaic Georgia fundraising, community outreach, special events, and prevention activities as they become available. Childcare Volunteers will assist with childcare during our non-offending caregiver support groups. Ten hours of continuing education are required each year to remain up to date with practices, resources, and laws.
