A new training class is starting in October for people who want to become certified sexual assault victim advocates.
Advocates respond to hospitals and police stations when a victim reports a sexual assault. Advocates support victims throughout the examination and reporting process, offering victims resources, comfort and an ally.
Sexual assault is a pervasive crime and advocates help make sure victims are supported and fully knowledgeable about their rights during what can an emotionally trying time.
Services Empowering Rights of Victims (SERV), which operates through New Jersey's Center for Family Services, trains advocates to help victims in Gloucester, Camden and Cumberland counties. The 40-hour training session gives you the tools you need to make a difference in someone's life.
The upcoming training session runs on Oct. 27, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Oct. 29, Nov. 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26 from 5 to 9 p.m. at Gloucester County College in Sewell.
