Volunteer Opportunities: Special Projects – assist with a variety of projects and events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness. Opportunities may include assisting with bulk mailings, June SouthPointe Concert Series, April Child Abuse Awareness Month Event and Fall Monster Dash. Child Supervision and Support - assist with supervising children and provide support on a variety of tasks as needed during our operating hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00-5:00). Duties include supervising and engaging children in activities (games, reading, and movies), stocking stuffed animal closets, sanitizing and organizing toys and a variety of clerical projects. Volunteers should enjoy working with children of all ages and have a willingness to pitch in and help with whatever may be needed that day. Landscape and grounds maintenance – assist with weeding, spreading mulch, raking, cleaning windows and sweeping. This is a great project for NWU’s Lend a Hand to Lincoln event.* Internship Opportunities: Internships are provided for college students looking to complete a minimum of 250 hours as required by the schools practicum/internship requirements. The practicum/internship program must specify that the Child Advocacy Center will 1) complete an evaluation of the intern’s performance and 2) verify that 250 hours are required and have been completed. Interns are assigned to observe forensic interviews and prepare a draft summary, assist our multidisciplinary teams by preparing a summary of all new child abuse and neglect reports accepted for initial assessment, observe the non-offending caregiver initial interview and assist the child advocate with documentation and provide clerical support. Interns will have the opportunity to attend professional training.
