The Dallas Children's Advocacy Center has diverse, flexible, and meaningful opportunities for those interested in volunteering their time and unique talents toward restoring dignity, hope, and trust to children traumatized by physical and sexual abuse. All volunteers receive comprehensive training.

Volunteers are a welcomed and appreciated part of the DCAC team.  An interview, criminal and CPS criminal background check, and training is required for all people who wish to volunteer.

Volunteer orientation is held the last Tuesday of every month from 6:30 p.m.- 7:30 p.m. No orientation is held in November or December.
