INFORMATION ABOUT THE AVAA
The Arizona Victim Assistance Academy (AVAA) is a project of the Arizona Coalition for Victim Services (ACVS) which is a non-profit coalition made up of crime victim service providers. To date, AVAA has trained over 700 advocates state-wide.
This Basic Acacdemy provides a rare opportunity to work, study and interact with other victim service providers from around the state. The number of attendees is purposely kept small so that adult learning techniques can be used to reinforce the information received by the instructors.
This Academy is intended to provide fundamental information for all crime victim advocates. The Academy is designed primarily for victim service providers who are new to the field of advocacy with approximately one to three years of experience; however experienced advocates may also find the academy beneficial.
This material is pre-approved by the National Advocate Credentialing Program. For more information see http://www.trynova.org/help-crime-victim/nacp/
The registration includes; continental breakfast, lunch and all instructional materials.
