Volunteers are a very important part of our program. We are in the process of reconfiguring our Volunteer Program to meet our needs as an organization and provide meaningful opportunities to compassionate community members who want to be a part of this incredible movement to end domestic violence.

At this time, we are not recruiting or onboarding new volunteers, with the exception of committee members outline below. Our capacity to host interns is full through the end of this calendar year.

Thank you for your interest. We will announce when we are ready to bring on new volunteers in the future and feel free to check this page back often.

Board Member or Committee Work

Partners for Peace is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of passionate community members who volunteer their time to provide organizational and financial oversight and serve as ambassadors for the organization. We are always looking for dedicated folks to serve on our Governing Board. This committee acts as our organizational board of directors, responsible for overall policy and direction of the organization. We also have several standing committees at our organization including a Finance Committee and Development & Engagement Committee. Volunteers can be invited to join these committees at Board or community members.

If you have any questions, please email our Executive Director, Amanda Cost, at acost@partnersforpeaceme.org.


Internship Opportunities – We are accepting internship applications for 2025, but no sooner. 

Are you interested in working directly with people affected by abuse? How about learning about the court system? Helping with nonprofit public relations? We work with area universities and colleges to provide internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate level students.
