Get Involved


DCRCC’s vision for community engagement builds upon the contributions made by each person who has touched and served DCRCC since its inception in 1972. We center volunteers in all of our work with a desire to equip the unique skills, networks, and passions which exist in our community. Identifying and igniting these assets gives us the vision, movement and tools to meaningfully support survivors while intentionally cultivating healthier, equitable and safer communities and relationships.

With this vision we are moving forward and creating every day. DCRCC moves with a deep passion, a competent team, a strong leader, a rich history, and a creative plan. With all we hope to create and accomplish, we are committed to continually building out our team and encourage you to browse our programs to see if there is any way you would like to join us in powering a culture of consent.

If you would like to talk with someone about engagement opportunities, volunteering, internships, or have any questions, please email to get started.
