Anti-Sex Trafficking Volunteer Opportunities
Every Saturday night, a team of volunteers hits the streets of Atlanta to pass out handmade cards and roses to communicate to women – primarily trapped in street prostitution – that they are valuable and cared for and that there are opportunities for hope and recovery. The cards include messages of kindness and the 24-hour hotline number.
Strip Club Outreach
On Friday Nights, a specialized and highly-trained team of volunteers visits both men and women working in the commercial sex industry across Atlanta. The team regularly stays out until 1:30 AM visiting individuals in strip clubs, in brothels and on the surrounding streets with the aim to build trust, restore self-worth and educate individuals about resources. Due to the sensitive nature of this program, training and background checks are required.
Mentors provide emotional and spiritual support, as well as psycho-educational resources. Mentors also assist victims with community services information they may need to move forward upon release. Mentors and pen pals support victims through letters or postcards of encouragement. Due to the sensitive nature of this program, training and background checks are required.
Atlanta Dream Center’s Anti-Sex Trafficking Hotline operates 24-hours, 365 days a year and acts as the bridge between victimization and safety. Hotline volunteers are women trained to meet the needs of victims. Due to the sensitive nature of this program, training and background checks are required.
If a caller to our 24-Hour Hotline is a victim of commercial sexual exploitation and is interested in entering a long-term recovery program, a rescue team is immediately assembled to bring the victim to the Atlanta Dream Center Safe Home. Due to the sensitive nature of this program, training and background checks are required.
Atlanta Dream Center operates a crisis Safe Home for female victims of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation who are over the age of 17. Volunteers can serve in the home leading classes, activities or even help out with home maintenance. Due to the sensitive nature of this program, training and background checks are required.
Community Training and Awareness Ambassadors
Trained volunteers represent Atlanta Dream Center at a variety of community events and speaking opportunities. Due to the educational nature of this program, training and background checks are required.
Homelessness Volunteer Opportunities
Every Thursday night, a team of volunteers hit the streets of Atlanta to pass out meals, hygiene products, and our homelessness support line. The goal is to not only meet immediate needs, but to form trusting relationships with our friends on the street in order to help them transition off the street whenever they are ready to make that decision.
We are currently looking for volunteers interested in serving on our Homelessness Department’s Support Line team. We are looking to shift this support line from a business hours format to a 24/7 format, similar to our Anti-Sex Trafficking Department’s hotline. Training and background checks will be required. If interested, please click the interest form button below.
Youth Prevention Volunteer Opportunities
Kids Club is a weekly large group mentorship initiative to engage children and families and build trust through games, stories, arts and crafts, small group mentoring sessions, prayer and worship. Volunteers help to facilitate activities while also seeking opportunities for 1:1 mentorship moments. Volunteers for our Kids Club program go through a training and background check process.
Huddles are weekly small group mentoring sessions for boys and girls ages 8 to 12 designed to develop capacity for healthy relationships, practice skills to navigate abusive or exploitative situations and cultivate intrinsic strength, value and purpose. Mentors for our Huddles program go through a training and background check process.
Each Saturday Morning, a team of volunteers throws a block party in one of the strategically-identified neighborhoods we serve. Going door-to-door, teams check in on families and provide activities for neighborhood children, such as art projects and outdoor games.
