OVC Webinars

Victim Assitance Leadership Institute

The NVAA Leadership Institute provides skills and knowledge for new and seasoned victim services leaders who provide or have provided direct services to victims to build capacity within victim-serving agencies. The training uses a blended learning approach with a combination of self-paced online training and facilitated webinars. The NVAA Leadership Institute is conducted by two nationally recognized experts in the victim services field. Each webinar session lasts 75 minutes. Sessions run for 11 consecutive weeks, including a welcome and introductory week. See information about each session. Each session is designed to maximize interaction between participants and instructors. All webinars will be recorded, so if you are unable to meet online for a live webinar you can listen to the recording. Since each session builds upon prior sessions, it is important that you listen to the recording of each webinar before the next webinar takes place.


Advanced Skills Institute

Strategic planning can help you produce innovative and creative ideas to serve as a core framework to design your program's future. Strategic planning is particularly important now because of the significant increase in available VOCA assistance funds for victim assistance programs.

In Strategic Planning for Program Managers you will learn strategies to establish a clear direction and to make decisions that are aligned with your program's mission, goals, and objectives. The training uses a blended–learning approach with a combination of self-paced online training and facilitated webinars. This training will run over 5 weeks with four webinars, each about 75 minutes. See information for each session.
