As we step into the new year, DVRP invites you to be part of an extraordinary initiative: the LotusLink Volunteer Program. We’ve spent the last year carefully preparing for the launch with the input from our community, staff, and interns. Our groundbreaking program aims to forge a powerful community dedicated to supporting Asian/Pacific Islander survivors, fostering healing, and challenging gender and power-based violence.

The LotusLink Volunteer Program

The LotusLink Volunteer Program offers a transformative opportunity for individuals to create a lasting impact in survivors' lives. Volunteers may select the team they join and commit to a year-long journey, becoming an integral part of working with and/or supporting survivors on their path to healing and recovery. Inspired by Dean Spade's vision, our aim is to build a connected network where individuals grow with the work, the team, and the broader social movements.

What Volunteers Can Expect

Volunteers undergo comprehensive training in trauma-informed care, cultural sensitivity, safety planning, and de-escalation. Equipped with these essential skills, they provide immediate support and resources to survivors. Volunteers also gain access to ongoing mentorship, educational materials, and a supportive community committed to ending gender and power-based violence.

Program Schedule Highlights

The LotusLink Volunteer Program comprises a series of events and trainings aimed at preparing volunteers to make a meaningful impact:
