The ZOE Project is an entirely volunteer-run organization and all positions are virtual/tele-based. Here are some of the opportunities we're currently taking inquiries for:
Social Media Advocate
We're looking for a social media savvy volunteer to help us keep our Instagram and Facebook pages up to date. Social media is a common way survivors gain information and develop the confidence and assistance they need to leave. It's also a common place we receive inquiries from friends and families of survivors. Social media is therefore an important part of the work that we do.
Research/Curriculum Development Assistant
We are currently researching and developing a curriculum to be provided as a self-paced, self-help resource for survivors of intimate partner violence. The curriculum will be pilot-tested in Spring 2020. We are looking for a volunteer to assist with additional research efforts (e.g., sourcing articles), synthesizing information, and helping with pilot-testing.
The ZOE Project will be offering a peer-to-peer survivor group once per month in the Greater Seattle Area. We are currently looking to build our roster of group facilitators. Dates and times of the group are TBD.
If you're interested in volunteering, please send us an email with a short introduction about you, why you're interested in the volunteer role, and how you think you can help. Thank you for your interest!
Got An Idea?
If you have an idea about something you'd like to do to help raise awareness about intimate partner violence, let us know! We love hearing from our community members and engaging others in building awareness around this issue. Some examples have included Zumba in the park, candlelight vigils, clothing drives for local shelters, book club reads, and groups that get together to write "love letters" for survivors.
Let's Make A Change
The ZOE Project does not currently take donations. However, here are some ways you can donate to Washington State organizations focused on helping survivors and building zero-tolerance attitudes towards abuse:
