YWCA seeks volunteers for Pathways Program


MISSOULA, Mont. - The Missoula YWCA is looking for volunteers to help in its Pathways Program.

Volunteers would become an advocate and answer the 24-hour crisis line or work at the shelter. They would provide crisis intervention and emotional support to women, children and men who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

The volunteer coordinator says if you want to help out, you need to fill out an application form, go through an interview, orientation and through an intense 45-hour training session over the course of two weeks.

"Volunteers help us in so many ways, but really we have a small staff group who are working day and night and the volunteers are really there to help us serve the participants better," said YWCA Volunteer Coordinator Rebecca Pettit.

Pettit says to apply as soon as possible if you are interested, because training will start February 21.

You can pick up an application at Missoula's YWCA.

If you have questions regarding information, you can contact Pettit at (406) 543-6691 or email her at
