Local Volunteers

Become an Advocate

Not everyone has the ability to move overseas and serve. Not to worry, Destiny Rescue needs your help right where you are. Check out our many local volunteer opportunities...

Do you have a heart to see children set free from the sex-trade, to empower the poor and a deep desire to serve in your local community but impact globally? Do you want to make a difference in the world, but don’t have the ability to go overseas? If that’s you, then consider volunteering your time and skills as an advocate to help us raise awareness and funds for overseas projects from right where you live!

By becoming a Child Rescue Advocate, you can help contribute towards creating new destiny’s for children and young women all around the world. Human trafficking is the fastest growing illegal trade worldwide and with 1.8 million new children trafficked into slavery each year it would seem there is no end in sight.

A fast growing grassroots movement of passionate abolitionists is one way that can turn the tide on the horrific trade of human life. As a Child Rescue Advocate, we provide you with the support and resources you need to host your own event, connect and work with other advocates around the world, receive updates on what’s happening in Child Rescue internationally, and enjoy being part of the Destiny Rescue family.

Advocates can choose various ways to help based on their passion, abilities, life experience and availability. Advocates can get involved with one or more streams to help raise awareness at events, in their workplaces, communities, schools etc.
