Education Advocates provide strategies to prevent victimization by focusing on conditions that reduce violence. Primary prevention refers to behavior change. Therefore, strategies move beyond knowledge and awareness to include opportunities for audiences to learn, practice, and adopt skills and behavior changes that create environments and cultures free from violence.
Education Advocates offer one time, educational/community awareness programs designed to raise an understanding of violence and victimization in our community. These programs can occur in either an academic, professional, or community setting.
Crisis Intervention Volunteer Training
Education Advocates provide an 80-hour crisis intervention training that is action focused, client-centered and trauma informed. This provides individuals with para-professional counseling skills to support victims/survivors when they are faced with crisis situations.
Help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Contact us for information and assistance.
