Volunteer & Internship Opportunities
Domestic and sexual violence impacts all of us, regardless of age, economic status, race, gender, religion, or education. There are many people who truly desire to help those affected. But how? Many people desire to help, but do not know where, or how, to start.
The FJC offers many services to those affected by domestic and sexual violence in one location and volunteers are invaluable to supporting these daily operations and specialty programs. From assisting FJC Staff in the office, to sharing their voice as a member of VOICES, sitting with FJC guests to support them, or assisting with community outreach and specialty program support, there are unlimited opportunities for volunteers with different interests, skills, and experiences.
The FJC also values individuals pursuing field placement for academic programs in related fields of study. FJC Internships are available on a semester basis and offer opportunities for emerging professionals to learn from our many onsite and community partners working within the fields of violence response and prevention.
If you’re interested in learning more about joining us as a FJC volunteer or intern, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 336.641.7233 for more information.
People of Courage and Strength
Domestic violence, sexual abuse and assault impacts all of us, regardless of age, economic status, race, gender, religion, or education. Tens of thousands of women, men and children are affected in our community. Today, survivors are stopping these violence crimes and making Guilford County safer one voice at a time. They are taking action and restoring hope. They are using their VOICE and reclaiming their lives. Through outreach and education, people of courage and strength are thriving and bringing about positive social change.
The VOICES Committee is comprised of survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who volunteer their time and use their collective voice to help others through advocacy, education, and empowerment. The VOICES Committee works closely with the Guilford County Family Justice Center leadership to ensure FJC services and outreach efforts meet the needs of survivors and the committee’s mission if focused toward community awareness providing pathways to hope for survivors.

Meet some of our VOICES Committee members
Currently, I am pursuing my Master’s of Social Work degree through the University of New England. It is my passion to empower others as both a survivor, and as a counselor. I obtained an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Guilford College and have researched domestic violence extensively in both my undergraduate and graduate work. Currently, I work for the Child Response Initiative and reach out to families who have experienced a traumatic event, and I am also a Weekend Violence Responder for Elon University providing immediate response to sexual assault and domestic violence victims on campus. Being a volunteer with the Guilford County Family Justice VOICES Council is a way for me to use my voice to create systemic change in eradicating violence through outreach and education with other survivors who share my passion.
In April 2012, my estranged husband attempted to kill me. I suffered multiple stab wounds and thus spent months navigating a pathway to healing both physically and emotionally. As a survivor, I now use my voice to advocate and motivate others to live free from violence and abuse. I am blessed to be able to share my story in hopes of being inspirational and supportive. I am native of Blackstone, VA and a proud graduate of Bennett College. I spent my professional career working for the City of Greensboro for over 30 years until I retired because of the injuries I suffered at the hands of a domestic abuser. I am passionate about helping others and serve in a variety of volunteer roles including as a member of the City of Greensboro’s Commission on the Status of Women. I have a beautiful family which includes my daughter, son-in-law, 3 grandchildren and a host of supportive family and friends.
