Become a Victim Advocate
The University of North Florida Victim Advocacy Program provides training once a year during the summer semester for aspiring on-call victim advocates. Orientation occurs the end of June and training begins in July. Students receive comprehensive, skill-based training in a convenient and comfortable location in small groups, which allow learners to interact directly with instructors and participate in role plays and group exercises.
On-call victim advocates provide support to the full-time victim advocate and staff the 24 hour Crisis Helpline after hours, including evenings, weekends and holidays. Students must be junior status or higher and willing to commit to at least one year of service to be eligible for training.
If you possess good communication skills, are passionate about helping others and have the ability to remain calm and focused during a crisis, come volunteer with us! Fill out our volunteer application and indicate that you want to work with the Victim Advocacy Program.
