The Oregon State Basic Victim Assistance Academy (Basic Academy) provides fundamental education for victim service providers and allied professionals who routinely interact with victims of crime. The August 2021 Basic Academy will be 100% virtual. This interactive, online format increases accessibility to critical advocacy training. There will be synchronous and asynchronous elements of the Basic Academy. This means participants will get to do some work at their own pace and then come together with peers for live sessions to learn other pieces and share efforts.

Participants are obligated to participate in 40 hours of training.  This means approximately 10 hours per week for four weeks, through a combination of self-paced individual work as well as set times for live online sessions with the entire cohort.  The training will begin Monday, August 2nd and conclude Friday, August 27th.  Live online sessions are scheduled for Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays of each week from 10:00am – 1:00pm Pacific.

As you know, the Basic Academy is a place for learning the fundamentals of effective victim advocacy and for building a sustainable, collaborative community dedicated to serving and empowering victims.  More information about the SVAA Basic Academy is available on NCVLI’s website.
