Apply to be a Peer Advocate for the Survivor Advocacy Program!

The Women’s Center is now accepting applications for the Ohio University Survivor Advocacy Program! Peer advocates are Ohio University students who are trained in working with survivors of sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, and stalking.  Peer advocates are also trained in understanding sexual violence prevention education. They work together to increase awareness and knowledge across campus and the broader community.

In order to be a peer advocate, we ask that each applicant complete a four credit hour class in Spring Semester. Applicants should be able to commit a full academic year (Fall 2012-Spring 2013) to the program, and must be able to make a weekly meeting on Mondays 8:00 AM.

The written application is the first step in the selection process, and may be picked up in person at the Women’s Center in Baker 403, or in 06 McKee House.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Survivor Advocacy Program office at survivor advocacy@ohio.edu or the Women’s Center at womenscenter@ohio.edu.
