Advocate Training is a 40-hour comprehensive basic sexual assault training for those seeking advocate certification or those providing other support services to sexual assault survivors. The training covers the foundational topics of sexual assault advocacy in supporting adult and adolescent survivors. Participants will learn how to provide survivor-centered, trauma informed responses to survivors and the skills to safely advocate for survivors in their community.
Due to limited funding and capacity, SATF will be prioritizing applicants who are:
- New advocates in need of certification to provide confidential and privileged services under ORS 147.600 https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/147.600
- New advocates who have not received basic sexual assault training
advocates providing services in rural/frontier regions
- Tribal based advocacy programs
- Advocates providing culturally specific services
The training will take place June 11 – June 15, 2018 from approximately 8AM-5PM. You must be able to attend the entire week to apply.
A limited number of travel scholarships to include (lodging, Per Diem, mileage) are available for travel beginning Sunday, June 10th through Friday, June 15th, based on need.
*If you have travel funds budgeted and available for the costs of this training, we ask that you utilize those funds so that we can offer scholarships to other participants.
Applications will be accepted through April 14, 2018 (12 PM PST). You will be notified via email of your application status by early May. Please note, unfortunately not all applicants will be chosen to attend due to limited capacity.
