As an Agency, we welcome volunteers to bring their talents and services to the victims we serve. Our volunteer program is an integral part of the Agency and volunteers help to provide comprehensive direct services. All services provided at the Agency are free of charge to all victims, and victims’ circumstances are confidential. Due to the high-level of confidentiality, all volunteers must sign a Confidentially Agreement and adhere to all Agency regulations.

The agency must comply with state regulations; therefore all volunteers must complete an application, a background check consisting of fingerprinting and New York State Central Registry.

The agency does cover the cost of the background check, but it can take a few weeks to complete.

Your background checks will validate your ability to volunteer at the Agency.

The Agency looks forward to you becoming part of our team!

If you are interested in volunteering at the Agency, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Madelaine Taylor, at madelainet@vacjc.com or 315-755-1434.
