Become a Peer Victim Advocate

Contributed by: Belinda McNeill
Published: Tuesday, 22 August 2017 3:00 PM
Are you looking for a way to get involved on campus? Are you interested in volunteering your time to make a difference in someone’s life? Are you passionate about supporting survivors of violence?

If so, consider applying to join the Office of Victim Services Peer Victim Advocate (PVA) training course this fall semester!

Training will be held weekly, on Thursdays, from 3:30-4:45pm.
The course will start September 21 and end on December 7 (no class November 23).
The group will meet in the Health Center, Room 206.
*This training is on a volunteer basis and not for course credit.*

Students completing this training will become members of the PVA team and will be educated on providing after-hours, on-call advocacy and support to survivors of gender based violence. Additionally, students will learn how to facilitate educational programs related to issues involving relationship violence, sexual violence, stalking, healthy relationships and related topics. If you are good at listening, desire to help connect your peers to resources, want to inform them of their options, and are encouraging and empowering, please consider applying.

It is imperative that all applicants review the training expectations and requirements by visiting the OVS website.

After considering the role, responsibilities, and time commitment, if you are interested, please apply here.

Applications need to be submitted by 11:59pm Friday, September 1.
Late applications will not be considered.
This opportunity is open to undergraduate and graduate students.
Because of the time needed to train each peer advocate, a two semester time commitment is expected of new advocates—this does include your semester in training.

Please note: This will be the only day of the week/time of day this training is offered this semester. If it does not coordinate with your academic or work schedule, we would invite you to consider applying in the spring 2018 semester.
