Our AmeriCorps program educates, trains, and certifies both professionals who are working in the community and current students at Arizona State University to be domestic violence (DV) advocates in the community through our certificate program. We place the certified DV advocates within community agency partners in the role of interns, employees, and AmeriCorps volunteers. Social workers and other helping professionals with knowledge of domestic violence are better equipped to intervene safely, educate survivors, and provide appropriate resources and evidence-based interventions.
The certificate offered through the School of Social Work on ASU’s downtown campus. The curriculum for the certificate is designed to be complementary to social work elective courses and the AmeriCorps program. The certificate is open to other disciplines that will benefit from the emphasis on professional development and service delivery. The certificate provides both academic and practical expertise in domestic violence advocacy.
