CONWAY — Starting Point is now accepting applications for volunteers. Training begins via Zoom on Sept. 24.

All are welcome to attend the orientation to learn more about the agency’s work in Carroll County. If you are moved to make a difference in your community either through direct service work or project-based efforts Starting Point welcomes you to become part of the team.

A commitment to 20 hours of in-person training (achieved through Zoom conferencing) in accordance to NH RSA, will be provided to help you hone your skills and broaden your understanding of the complex issues related to domestic and sexual violence, trafficking and stalking.

Starting Point’s volunteer program offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities in child, court, hospital and personal advocacy and crisis-line work as well as outreach and development work.

On-going training and supervision will help you make a difference. As a bonus to those building their work experiences, having Starting Point on your resume will be a standout to future employers.

Retirees can both contribute their expertise and branch out into new avenues with the support of the volunteer training. A longtime volunteer at Starting Point says the experience “opened my eyes and filled my heart.”

For more information or to register for the upcoming training please email

Starting Point provides free and confidential services to victims of domestic and sexual violence stalking and human trafficking throughout Carroll County. If you or someone you know need help, call (800) 336-3795.
