ITRC has many opportunities for volunteers throughout the country. Volunteers are our eyes and ears, listening for new trends, watching for proposed legislation, participating in community events, and finding press and media articles that we might otherwise miss. Frequently volunteers are victims, however you may also be a person concerned with this crime for other reasons. Generally our volunteers have flexible hours and flexible duties. We are grateful to those who volunteer their time.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the ITRC, please send an email to: indicating your area of interest, along with your name and phone number, and a brief resume. You will be contacted to discuss volunteer efforts, and we will answer any questions you have. ITRC provides all training via teleconference, a rather costly venture for us. For that reason there are several steps in the “get acquainted” process. We will discuss this process in our contact with you.
