Coming in 2018: Southwest Virginia registration
Three regional trainings were offered in 2017 for newly-hired crime victim advocates. These Basic Intensive Trainings, sponsored by the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance (The Action Alliance) and the Virginia Victim Assistance Network (The Network) with funding through the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS), were for advocates in local domestic violence and/or sexual violence programs and advocates in victim/witness programs with less than two years of direct services to victims.
A fourth training will be held in March 2018 in Southwest Virginia. Dates and location to be determined.
Who should attend? Advocates in local domestic violence and/or sexual violence programs and advocates in victim/witness programs with less than two years of direct services to victims are encouraged to attend. Preference will be given to those advocates who are funded through DCJS with federal or state grant funds.
Each training will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. on the first day, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. Training on the second day will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end by 2:30 p.m.
Cost for the training is: $25.00, which includes training materials. Lunch will be provided on both days.
Dress is casual but remember that the temperature varies in training rooms so dressing in layers is the best option.
Participants are to register for ONE training event. Cancellations must be received by close of business two weeks (work days) prior to the training.
