All advocates are required to undergo a minimum of 30 hours of training on the issues of sexual assault, sexual harassment, relationship abuse and stalking, and the systems that pertain to these issues. Advocates empower survivors by providing information, tools, resources and opportunities. They are trained to work with survivors respectfully, recognizing that systems may be confusing and overwhelming to survivors.
