At the Ion Center, we work intentionally to serve people of all identities who have been impacted by power-based personal violence, and spend time thinking strategically how we can work to change systems that can cause harm to those individuals, both at the local and state level.

Yes, Grades 6 – 12
List possible volunteer opportunities -or- a link to where they can be found on the web.
Both junior high school and high school students volunteer at The Ion Center. Because of their ages and the training required, they are not able to do direct service work with our clients. However, they are a great help when it comes to organizing/cleaning our spaces and preparing giveaway supplies (like t-shirts, pop sockets, and buttons)!
