Join KCSARC’s Speakers Bureau

Want to raise your voice to make a change in your community?

KCSARC offers former clients a variety of opportunities for personal and professional development — and the chance to SPEAK OUT against sexual assault and abuse in meaningful, change-making ways.

Individual and group coaching and support is available to help prepare you to educate and advocate for change in the way survivors are seen, heard and treated. Speakers Bureau members have the opportunity to work with and learn from peers and KCSARC staff to prepare and practice your message and increase comfort with sharing your story.

Speaking opportunities can be added to your resume, and KCSARC staff can provide professional references for your participation.

What kind of opportunities are available?

  • Participating in outreach opportunities.
  • Sharing your story with elected officials.
  • Giving media interviews.
  • Participating in a podcast or webinar with KCSARC staff to help others learn.
  • Sharing a quote or story in writing, on video, or as an artistic expression on KCSARC platforms.

At this time, this program is open only to former or current KCSARC clients over age 18.
