Frequently Asked Questions


Joining the Survivor Link program provides you with a valuable opportunity to work toward Healthy Futures within our communities by addressing the pressing issue of domestic violence. Courses and training provided by the Office of Gender-Based Violence will teach you about evidence-based interventions for domestic violence and prevention through healthy relationships education. You’ll also have the opportunity to become a verified Domestic Violence Advocate through our partnership with the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence. You can take advantage of AmeriCorps benefits including a living stipend and the Segal Education Award. AmeriCorps members can use this experience for course credit in accordance with their internship and academic policy, plus it looks great on your resume, and will leave you with a lasting network of colleagues and friends!

Each placement is different and can be tailored to your interests! Activities and tasks are identified in collaboration with your site supervisor to help you integrate into the community organization. Most internship placements qualify, and you will incorporate healthy relationships promotion or domestic violence interventions depending on your interests and those of your placement agency. The Domestic Violence & National AmeriCorps Service (SWU 415/SWG545) course will help you integrate domestic violence or healthy relationships information into your practicum.

If you are a current ASU undergraduate or graduate student in any discipline and in good academic standing with an interest in promoting healthy relationships or ending domestic violence in Arizona, you are invited to apply! You will be encouraged to register for the Domestic Violence & National AmeriCorps Service (SWU 415/SWG 545) course. Members must have an up-to-date Level-One AZ Fingerprint Clearance card (or be willing to obtain one), meet AmeriCorps requirements, and follow the application steps. Former AmeriCorps members are welcome to apply as well as long as they have not surpassed the maximum terms of service. To see if you qualify, please email

We offer 300 hour, 450 hour, and 675 hour positions; students most commonly enroll in the 450 hour position. Since both the ASU BSW and ASU MSW programs require 480 internship hours per year, as a social work student, you can be an AmeriCorps member without doing additional practicum hours. During your term of service, you will track your hours weekly using our simple online time card system, OnCorps.

The Survivor Link program is intended to work in combination with practicum or internship credits in the School of Social Work and across the university. You can complete your internship/practicum hours for credit, and count those same hours as AmeriCorps service!

Typically, the entire process takes about 2-4 weeks and includes a conversation with Survivor Link staff, a formal Americorps application, background check, verification of identity and of your fingerprint clearance card, and additional steps as needed. The onboarding process can occur anytime throughout the year! If you are interested in applying or learning more, please email

No, you do not! Many students from other schools and colleges join Survivor Link. Depending on your degree requirements, you may even be able to count your practicum hours toward your AmeriCorps service. Reach out to us if you have questions about your specific situation:
