The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Office of Justice Services, 'Indian Country Victim Assistance Training Program'  (ICVATP) Digital Listening Discussion will be held on November 16, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. (MST). (10:00 a.m. AKT/, 11:00 a.m. PST, 2:00 p.m. EST).

The BIA Office of Justice Services (OJS) Victim Assistance Program (VAP) is creating a basic training curriculum specifically designed for Victim Advocates providing direct services to all victims of crime in Indian Country and Alaska Native communities.

Subject Matter Experts have been enlisted to develop training modules aimed at providing the basic knowledge, skills and abilities tribal victim advocates, with less than three years of work experience, need to know to provide and enhance direct services to crime victims.

As part of the ICVATP design and development, we are conducting a webinar to solicit input from tribal stakeholders on the critical topics that the ICVATP curriculum should include for victim advocates working in tribal communities. The facilitated session includes input in four core areas related to crime victims and program needs, including culturally relevant components to incorporate into the ICVATP curriculum.

Partner Agencies: U.S. Department of the Interior, BIA, OJS, U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC); NICWA, NIWRC, NAICJA,  CSVANW
