*Spring Training begins soon! Apply now!*
The Sexual Assault Advocate Program is a response to sexualized violence that reflects not only the needs of survivors but one that engages Community as an integral ally.
If you have a passion for helping others during times of distress or feel a desire to shift the Cowichan Valley into a culture of consent, consider registering for the spring advocate training. Screened applicants complete 78 hours of specialized training over the course of one year. Training is grounded in feminist theory with a trauma-informed client-centred approach that explores rape culture, impact and neurobiology of trauma, psychology of victim blaming, colonization, affirmative consent, community engagement through social action, and coordination with criminal justice system partners.
