Volunteer with ATVP!

The hotline volunteers at Alternatives to Violence of the Palouse are the first voices survivors hear when they call us. They're passionate, committed, caring people, and we rely on them to continue to provide 24-hour advocacy to Whitman and Latah counties. We train volunteers twice a year, spring and fall, and ask for a year's commitment from everyone who joins us. Do you want to help survivors? Consider becoming one of our volunteer advocates!

ATVP will host our 40 hour in-person training in Fall 2017 on the following dates:

  • 09/19: 5:00pm-10:00pm, WSU
  • 09/21: 5:00pm-10:00pm, UI
