JDI is fortunate to benefit from the talents of wonderful volunteers, including our board members, committee members, and interns. If you are looking for ways to make an impact, learn new skills, and be part of a team, check out these opportunities with JDI or one of our member organizations in your own community.

Volunteer with JDI Member Programs

Our member organizations work directly with survivors and victims by providing them with support through services such as counseling, housing, or a 24-hour hotline. Most organizations require satisfactory completion of an extensive volunteer training program. Each coordinates their own volunteers so the best way to find out how you can help is to get in touch with your local program.

Volunteering for Jane Doe Inc.

Most volunteer activities with JDI take place on weekdays during regular business hours. JDI occasionally needs volunteers to help at one-time events. Check out these opportunities and get started today!

  • Advocacy Alert Network – sign up to receive updates on important policy issues. We’ll include information on how to contact your elected officials regarding current legislation and budget items.
  • White Ribbon Day – Volunteer to be a White Ribbon Day (WRD) Ambassador and plan to attend the annual WRD event in March and #ReimagineManhood Symposium in December. You can also help organize WRD events in your workplace, school and youth programs, faith institution, or community and collaborate with your local sexual and domestic violence programs.
  • Events on behalf of Jane Doe Inc. – you can create your own event – from a house party to a pledge event – to help raise funds to support JDI. Fill out this form and let us know what you have in mind. Check out what other people have done to support JDI!
  • Public Relations – Getting the word out about JDI and our work is essential to our success as advocates for social change. Volunteers help us maximize traditional and social media opportunities to generate interest and participation in JDI’s key efforts – from advocacy alerts to public events such as trainings, fundraisers, and community actions.

Internships at Jane Doe Inc.

JDI offers a robust internship program where students gain skills related to prevention, planning, communications, fundraising, policy and more. Interns generally make commitments of at least ten hours per week (during regular business hours) for at least three months. While our internships are currently unpaid, we support students who receive classroom credit or summer stipends.


Your time, talents and treasure make everything at JDI possible. Over 83% of every dollar raised goes directly to programming.  We hope you will join our philanthropic community.
