CSVANW interfaces daily with tribal leadership, tribal courts, advocates, law enforcement, State and Federal partners and those who are directly affected by violence against Native women and children. On occasion CSVANW has job openings or is in need of facilitators, consultants and/or contractors.

The Coalition has several unpaid volunteer and internship opportunities for those wishing to aid in advocacy work on behalf of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, sex trafficking, teen dating violence and stalking in New Mexico’s tribal communities. The CSVANW has also partnered with several organizations for training and growth opportunities, including the University of New Mexico and the local Native American Community Academy, to help students in earning college and high school credit for hours worked with the organization.
Opportunities for both volunteers and interns include:
- Gaining applied research and policy experience. Aiding in evaluation of what type of advocacy work is effective in tribal communities.
- Site visits of CSVANW members who provide direct service to Native American women and children affected by violence.
- Helping with events and trainings, including the creation of flyers, taking notes during trainings to be used as a resource, creation of participant contact lists, and compiling and processing evaluations.
