The Vermont Victim Assistance Academy (VVAA) is an introductory educational opportunity designed to improve the quality and consistency of victims’ services in Vermont. The VVAA integrates core concepts and best practices that encourage a victim-centered, multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to supporting those whose lives have been impacted by crime. By cultivating participants’ knowledge, skills and attitudes, we build the capacity of our community to recognize, respect and respond to the needs and experiences of crime victims in our state.
This 64-hour course on victims' rights, services and experiences of crime and its aftermath was developed by local professionals with expertise in a variety of disciplines that encompass the network of support to victims and survivors of crime in Vermont. The VVAA is designed as a practical, interactive training founded on the principles of adult education (see below). It is open to those whose work and lives intersect with victims and survivors of crime. Click here for more information about the VVAA.
