Volunteer with Veterans For Child Rescue
Welcome to the V4CR Volunteer Application Portal.
Click the button below to Create your Volunteer Profile using our Community Event Registration and Volunteer Information System (CERVIS). Once registered you’ll be able to join the fight with us in a number of ways and update your profile, preferences and level of involvement at any time.
You DO NOT have to be a Veteran to support our mission. We have a place for nearly everyone willing to step forward and join in the fight to end child exploitation. You can assist us in a number of ways from online support and cyber patrols to physical event support and area leadership opportunities. Most volunteer levels do not require special credentials however several types of Licensed positions do. If credentials are required, a V4CR staff member will be in contact to request additional information from you.
We now have a number of volunteer options available to meet the many individual levels of commitment regularly presented to us. You can select your level of commitment when registering to be a volunteer. Even if you’re not a military veteran we can use your help in these areas:
*Personal support by Coordinator
As a F.A.S.T. Leader you are the main liaison in your community for Veterans For Child Rescue! This is an awesome responsibility for volunteers ready to stand with us in the fight to end domestic minor sex trafficking. You’ll work directly with our V4CR Volunteer Coordinator to organizing your community, set meetings, coordinate your local V4CR chapter and coordinate local fundraising campaigns to support the cause.
Only one Team Leader per city is selected for this program. As a F.A.S.T. Leader you have direct access to support from our team and you’re invited to exclusive associate only events. If you’re interested in doing more to support the mission these are the responsibilities and benefits of being a Team Leader:
- Primary coordinator for your City
- Community outreach and engagement leader
- Organize your community to fundraise for V4CR
- Assist with collaborative awareness efforts in your city
- Distribute educational materials within your community
- Set up and host meetings in your city/town to bring supporters together
- Help rally supporters to join the cause and join V4CR at annual events
F.A.S.T. Leaders are held to a higher standard than the average volunteer. We cannot accept anyone with a prior felony. F.A.S.T. applicants may be subject to criminal background checks. F.A.S.T. Leaders must be active in their community and be in good standing among their peers. Verifiable name, address, phone number, and other personal information must be given on the volunteer application. This is private information that will never be shared with anyone outside of our organization, but V4CR employees must be able to contact their volunteers through various outlets. F.A.S.T. Leaders are representatives of V4CR and must maintain the organization’s integrity through their actions and behaviors. This includes personal interactions on social media and in their community. V4CR reserves the right to cancel your participation at any time, without notice.
The requirements for a VIPR volunteer are to be a Veteran or Federal employee, have a set of skills needed by the organization (criminal investigator, intel experience,…) physical evaluation, a four day comprehensive evaluation, and a passport. After you put in an application you will receive a full questionnaire which will be sent out closer to evaluation time. At that point we will evaluate the questionnaire, perform a comprehensive background check, and go through a credentials verification process. If all that goes well, then you will be invited in 2019, to a mental evaluation, physical evaluation, and operations awareness evaluation.
We will not be bringing on any more VIPR Team members until 2019.
After victims are extracted from their traffickers they typically have next to nothing in the way of possessions and basic needs. By volunteering in this particular position, you will be a critical resource in your community that V4CR contacts can depend upon to provide basic humanitarian needs for the victims as they move forward toward their aftercare. Your responsibilities will include collecting basic necessities and creating “Aftercare Kits”. These kits should include at the base:
- Toothbrush and Toothpaste
- Feminine Hygiene Products
- Disposable Razor
- Nail Clippers
- Band Aids
- Hand Sanitizer
- Pen or Pencil
- Shirt, Bottoms, Socks, and Shoes
These Aftercare Kits can contain more than this basic set of items however as a volunteer in this position, you will be giving the victims a fresh start so even if you only do the basics, you will be making a huge difference.
