Victim Advocate Peer Group
The Victim Advocate Peer Group is an opportunity for advocates to discuss challenging cases, successes and trends in the field. Advocates get to network with peers from all over the state as well as hear from guest speakers. Meetings are held via Zoom on the third Tuesday of the month at 3:00PM(EST). NYS advocates who are part of a NYSCA member MDT are welcome.
Meetings are moderated by NYSCA staff, but each month there is a topic selected with input. Each member is expected to commit to participation in meetings, help with topics and presentations, but most importantly keeping all discussion confidential. Basic agendas are sent out ahead of time and members can join as their schedule allows.
Advocates may sign up on a rolling basis here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5DCF8C6
When you sign up, you will be contacted by a NYSCA staff member to welcome you and send the call-in information.
