We are back! For the first time since January of 2020, you can experience The Essentials of Victim Advocacy in person at our Denton Training Facility!

The Essentials of Victim Advocacy is the only nationally approved comprehensive online and in-person training of its kind, offered in the state of Ohio, for assisting individuals in becoming a comprehensive National Credentialed Advocate.

Participants who complete this 44 hour course will become equipped to use NOVA’s (National Organization for Victim Assistance) crisis intervention model to assist individuals impacted by victimization or traumatic events. Additionally, participants will increase their knowledge about the judicial system, victims’ rights as well as resources available for both victims and the advocate providing the service.
Victim Advocates | Varied Shifts | Full-Time

The ideal candidates for these roles will have a passion for helping those in need, be a team player, and possess the confidence to work independently to help clients achieve their goals. Victim Advocates provide trauma-informed services to victims, family members, and communities, impacted by crisis, violence, or tragedy by offering immediate crisis intervention and short/long term advocacy, via phone, text, chat, or in person to address the aftermath of their victimization.

Victim Advocate - Days | 8:00AM - 4:00PM | Full-Time

Victim Advocate - Evening | 4:00PM - 12:00AM | Full-Time

Victim Advocate - Overnight | 12:00AM - 8:00AM | Full-Time
Residents and employees of Summit County need crisis intervention services to address the aftermath of their victimization or traumatic events before being able to engage in their everyday routines. Victim Assistance Program is the only agency in Summit County providing this immediate service, 24 hours a day.

As a SCCRT volunteer, you will provide trauma-informed services to victims, family members and communities impacted by crisis, violence, or tragedy, by offering immediate crisis intervention and advocacy via phone, chat, text, or in-person to address the aftermath of the client’s victimization.

Not all work is done on the front lines, as the needs of victims fluctuate from “all the time” to next to none. Providing crisis response and advocacy services are only a part of the impact you’ll have for our agency. During your downtime, not only will you help the agency complete much needed tasks, but you will have the opportunity to enhance your own skills through required trainings.
Our offices will be closed on Monday, September 6, 2021 in observance of Labor Day but our advocates are always here to listen.

Just call our 24/7 hotline to speak with an advocate.


Have a safe and happy holiday!
