Susan Says: How Can I Help?

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

Words I love to hear, because I always have an answer:  Become an Ambassador! So what does an Ambassador do, and why is it so important?  An Ambassador is someone who is passionate about our mission, and wants everyone in our community to know about the WCA. They want everyone to know who we are, what we do, and whom to call if someone needs our services.  It’s the most important way to volunteer for the WCA.  There are 70 WCA Ambassadors, and over 100 who are working their way to their Ambassador badge!

Becoming an Ambassador is easy, and can fit even a busy person’s schedule.  Here are the steps:

    • Attend one of our “If These Walls Could Talk” tours
    • Come to a fun Ambassador 101 orientation lunch. They’re held the second Tuesday of the month here at the WCA. You’ll learn about the program, and meet others who are excited to join this great group of volunteers.  You can sign up to begin the fun here.
    • Gather a group of 10 or more people to attend one of our tours (either on-site at the WCA, or anywhere your group gets together).

When you have successfully achieved these steps, you get a special Ambassador badge and become one of the most valued supporters.  Because of the efforts of our Ambassadors, Bea and I are able to talk about the WCA to about 1,500 community members every year.  Join us!
