Regional Advocacy & Outreach Training (CANCELLED)
March 17, 2020 - March 18, 2020
THIS TRAINING HAS BEEN CANCELLED. We will be scheduling the same training in June so stay tuned.
DAY ONE: Exercise Your Sexual Assault Advocacy Skills
We commonly hear from SA advocates who don’t have opportunities to practice and improve their advocacy skills. This scenario-based training will allow advocates to practice their direct advocacy skills in a supportive environment. WCASA staff & volunteers will lead small-group simulations for advocates to practice in a variety of settings, including a simulation with SANE.
DAY TWO: Build a Sexual Assault Outreach Plan
With the increase in VOCA funding and SA staffing, programs are looking for support to connect with primary sexual assault victims. This hands-on training will help advocates identify how to connect with sexual assault survivors and develop an outreach plan for the agency. *We strongly recommend programs send two staff to support plan development and implementation.
