Advocate Core Fall 2022

October 7, 9:30 am
October 26, 12:30 pm
Event Type

The 30-hour Advocate Core training is designed to help new sexual assault advocates provide responsive and effective advocacy to survivors of sexual assault. This training meets the requirements as outlined by OCVA. This training has been designed to increase both the knowledge and skill base for training participants and emphasizes a participant-centered training approach.

Advocate Core is considered an introductory, entry-level sexual assault training designed for new volunteers and staff providing sexual assault services to survivors. It has been intentionally designed for those new to the field and should not be considered a relevant training for those who have been providing sexual assault advocacy for two or more years. Although any advocate is welcomed to attend an advocate core training, it is intended for new staff and volunteers and other training forums will be a better fit for those who have been in the field for some time to obtain new skills and knowledge.
