For Advocates

STAR® Core Advocate training is designed to help new advocates provide responsive and effective advocacy to survivors of sexual assault.

This training has been designed to increase both the knowledge and skill base for training participants and emphasizes a participant-centered training approach. The training is considered an introductory, entry-level sexual assault training designed for new volunteers and staff providing services to survivors. It has been intentionally designed for those new to the field and should not be considered a relevant training for those who have been providing sexual assault advocacy for two or more years.

The STAR® Core Advocate Training is broken into two parts, an online portion and an in-person portion. The online learning portion must be completed prior to attending the in-person training.
