Featuring an ensemble cast of highly-experienced instructors, this week-long training is designed to fulfill the state training requirements for domestic and sexual violence victim advocates.
Applications will be accepted on a first-come first-serve basis, with priority given to individuals who are currently working for or volunteering with a coalition member program, as well as new advocates that have not already received the core DV/SA advocacy training in-person. Maximum 30 attendees.
It has come to our attention that our upcoming in-person Core Advocacy Training on September 18th-22nd, 2017 conflicts with Rosh Hashanah. We were unable to reschedule due to contractual funding obligations.
We are sincerely sorry for this oversight in scheduling, and we will make recordings of workshop sessions held on Rosh Hashanah available to attendees as a way of striving to alleviate this conflict.
We also want to take a moment to recognize that we may have held past trainings and events during times that conflict with dates that are significant to our membership, and share our apologies for those occasions as well.
In order to be more intentional moving forward, we will be creating a community calendar, accessible on the coalition's public website, that will include important spiritual, religious, and other significant dates for all of our member programs and community partners. If there are dates that you would like to share with us for this community calendar, please email [email protected] (link sends e-mail).
As always, we invite all our members and community partners to reach out to us with any feedback and/or concerns. We are your coalition; we are committed to being responsive and improving our efforts.
Scholarships for coalition member programs
Confirmed attendees from coalition member programs located 70 or more miles from the training site are eligible to receive reimbursement for mileage* and lodging^ expenses associated with attending this training. Attendees will be responsible for their own meals and refreshments.
*Mileage reimbursement amounts will be calculated using the shortest drivable distance between each program's address of record and the training site, using the 2017 standard federal rate of $0.535/mile. Confirmed attendees do not need to submit proof of mileage incurred. Maximum one vehicle per program will be eligible for reimbursement; the coalition encourages carpooling when possible.
^Each confirmed attendee is responsible for booking and paying upfront for their lodging arrangements. Maximum six room-nights (i.e. one room for six nights, checking in on Sunday 9/17 and checking out on Friday 9/22) per member program shall be eligible for reimbursement. Confirmed attendees for which a return trip on Friday night would pose an undue hardship may request reimbursement for an additional room-night (to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis). Reimbursable lodging expenses shall not exceed the federal per diem rate of $116/night + tax (any additional expense shall not be reimbursed by the coalition). Each eligible attendee must submit their final hotel bill to Jonathan Gates, OCADSV Communications and Events Coordinator as soon as possible after the training.
