I would like to do my service learning hours with Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands, but I only need a few hours. Could I volunteer for a shorter period?

Students who are interested volunteering for 5 or 10 hours can sometimes volunteer in conjunction with our events, but may not meet the criteria to volunteer in other roles. For example, being a Volunteer Advocate or the Speaker’s Bureau requires that volunteers commit at least one year to the STSM and also complete an extensive amount of training. Being an Advocate or Speaker may not be a good fit for someone who wants to volunteer only to gain community service hours: they are serious and long-term commitments, and typically go far beyond what a class would require.  If you are not able to meet the one-year commitment, you may be able to volunteer in another capacity, such as in the office, which requires at least 45 hours of volunteer time.
