Join Our Team

The Assault Survivors Advocacy Program has two ways in which students can join our team as peer advocates: as volunteers or interns. When you're a peer advocate, you have a great opportunity to get involved on campus, develop skills, and give back to the Community of Bears. Check out the job descriptions below, submit an application, and join us in addressing the impacts of gender-based violence on the UNC campus!

Once you have submitted an application by the appropriate deadline, select applicants will be offered a 30-minute interview.  After the interview, we will conduct criminal background checks.  Select candidates who pass the background check will be sent offer letters, at which point they can either accept or decline a position with ASAP.  After accepting an offer to join our team, we will complete University conduct checks on all new members of ASAP prior to the first day of training.

Please note: Applicants, if selected, must be available to attend ASAP's 40-hour training, the week prior to classes beginning.  The Fall 2018 training will take place on August 13-17, 2018.  It is mandatory for all new advocates (both volunteers and interns).
