Purple Ribbon Volunteer/Internship Program Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Emerge Center Against Domestic Abuse

Volunteers at Emerge must be 18 years or older

In order to support the healing process for domestic abuse victims, Emerge is unable to consider applications from individuals who are currently participating in our programs and services.

To apply, complete this application and return as directed below.  Once we have received your application you will be contacted for an interview.  You will be required to obtain or provide an Arizona Department of Public Safety (ADPS) fingerprint clearance card.  These clearances require a one-time out-of-pocket fee, and can be reimbursed by Emerge or can be made as a donation to the agency. You will also be asked to complete a confidentiality agreement, professional ethics policy; submit a notarized criminal history affidavit; provide three references; and attend required training sessions provided by the agency.

If you are applying for an internship for academic credit, please also include a current résumé and documentation showing learning objectives and/or contracts. 

If you have any questions or concerns about the volunteer application and screening process, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 520-795-8001 ext. 7602.
