Volunteer advocates are a critical part of the movement. Volunteer advocates work with crime victims to obtain case related information, provide referrals based on their specific needs, and assist with safety planning, Crime Victim Compensation Fund, and VINE.

Ambassadors will reach out to community groups, educational institutions, and other organizations to create awareness about our organization and the services we provide.

Externs will assist staff with legal research and client communications, attend court proceedings, committee meetings, and perform other duties as assigned.

Content Manager

Content creators will create and maintain a blog, social media, and monthly newsletter (Justice Journal), while providing a cohesive message across all our social platforms. If you are a talented writer and interested in learning more about victims’ rights, we need you!

Committees will participate in planning our two signature events: Models of Justice and Rock ‘n Jock for Justice.

Models of Justice is an awards banquet that recognizes victims, advocates, justice officials, and others who go above and beyond in protecting victims' rights. Rock ‘n Jock for Justice is a concert and golf outing in the fall.

You can join a committee, help committee members, or volunteer the day of the event.

An assistant will work closely with Cathy Harper Lee, Executive Director. The hours are flexible, but ideally you will be in the office 2-3 times a week during normal business hours. Some of the work can be done from home.

College students have the opportunity to schedule events, put together a student discount/awareness card, and create awareness campaigns regarding victims’ rights and OCVJC services. Team members will receive victims’ rights training and have the opportunity to become an Ambassador.

Thank you to all our volunteers

Our volunteers come to us from all across the state, country, and world! Our dynamic team comes together to help crime victims in Ohio and to spread the word about victims’ rights. We celebrate and appreciate each and everyone one of them.

Thank you so much for the time, effort, and skills you lend to OCVJC. We would not be able to do what we do without you!
