SAVAS addresses the basics of being a victim advocate – answering the crisis line, providing individual and systems advocacy and providing outreach in your community. We are adapting sessions and activities to fit the constraints of web-based learning, while striving to provide a similar experience to in-person events.

This opportunity is being offered to staff of WCASA member Sexual Assault Service Providers (SASPs) for no fee. The registration fee for staff of other organizations serving sexual assault survivors is $300 for the entire training.

If you have any questions, please contact Vanessa Mauss – Office/Training Coordinator at
