NVAA Leadership Institute logo

Registration opening soon!

The Leadership Institute provides skills and knowledge for new and seasoned victim services leaders to build capacity within victim-serving agencies. The training uses a blended learning approach with a combination of self-paced online training and Web-based training.

There are no tuition fees to attend the NVAA Leadership Institute.

The Leadership Institute will be conducted by two nationally recognized experts in the victim services field. Sessions will run for 10 consecutive weeks. Each session lasts 1.5 hours and participants will have approximately 1.5 hours of assignments to complete between each session. See the schedule and information about each session.

Each session is conducted by Webinar, 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.

We understand that attending the Webinars and completing the required work between Webinars is a major time commitment on your part. Please check your schedule to ensure that you have the time and energy to complete the entire training. We anticipate that there will be many people who are interested in taking this training and we want to ensure that those who begin the training will be able to complete it.
