Training for Advocates working in an Advocacy Center
First Witness Advocacy model bridges the gap between individual advocacy with one victim and system-based advocacy that creates change for many victims. This is in contrast to more restrictive advocacy models that are based on delivering services identified by practitioners.
The Advocacy team at First Witness will teach our nationally recognized model to you through hands-on practice and participation. During this 3 day training workshop you will learn how to put advocacy principles into action. You will leave with the skills to organize and conduct focus groups to improve programming, change organizational systems and create programs that meet victims’ needs. Participants will practice skills for effective crisis intervention and advocacy, problem solving and decision making around the toughest issues in advocacy work.
Space for training is limited each session. Strengthen your skills and level of advocacy service you can provide by registering HERE today!
