Since 1973, the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) has been a leader in the movement to end sexual violence. BARCC empowers survivors of sexual violence to heal and provides education and advocacy for the social change needed to create cultures that prevent sexual violence. We rely on our dedicated, brilliant staff to do this important work, and our team is growing!
At BARCC, we don’t just accept difference—we celebrate it and are always seeking to learn from diverse people in order to continually build a more inclusive work environment.
BARCC strives to represent the communities we serve and values the interest of diverse candidates. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law.
BARCC is supported by roughly 50 staff members and over 200 dedicated volunteers. Half of our current staff started in this field by volunteering or interning at BARCC or another rape crisis center. Find out more about volunteering or interning with BARCC.
