AmeriCorps + Healthy Relationships

Make a difference. Choose your future. Choose AmeriCorps. 







Joining the Survivor Link program provides a valuable opportunity to address the pressing issue of domestic violence in our community. Through the Survivor Link program, you’ll learn more about evidence-based safety planning interventions and healthy relationship education. You also have the opportunity to become a verified Domestic Violence Advocate for the state of Arizona endorsed by the Arizona Coalition to End Sexual and Domestic Violence. In addition to this, you can take advantage of 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 social workers and organizations!


Each placement is different and the activities and tasks are tailored by the site supervisor to help the member integrate into the community organization. Survivor Link members’ will incorporate healthy relationship promotion and domestic violence information learned in the DV & National AmeriCorps Service (SWU 415/SWG545) course into their service.

Current ASU undergraduate or graduate students in any discipline and in good academic standing with an interest in promoting healthy relationships and ending domestic violence in Arizona are invited to apply. All in-person students will register for the DV & AmeriCorps National Service (SWU 415/SWG 545) course while online students take the ACESDV The Sharing Experience 40 hour M-F training. Members must also have an up-to-date Level-One AZ Fingerprint Clearance card or be willing to obtain one, 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 make sure you qualify, please fill out the interest form by emailing

We offer 300 hour, 450 hour, and 675 hour positions. Our most common position is the 450 hour role, since the BSW and MSW programs already require 480 internship hours. During their term of service, AmeriCorps members are required to track their hours weekly using our online time card system, OnCorps.

While the Survivor Link program is not an internship in itself, it works great in combination with the Social Work BSW and MSW Field/Practicum course. You are able to use your internship hours, and count them as AmeriCorps service!

Typically, the entire process takes about 2-4 weeks and includes 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 either before the Fall semester or before the Spring semester. If you are interested in applying, please email for an interest form

The answer is no! You do not have to be an AmeriCorps member or a student in a Social Work Program to apply for the Domestic Violence Certificate! The AmeriCorps Survivor Link program and Domestic Violence Certificate program are meant to complement one another, but they are not mutually exclusive. If you wish to pursue the DV certificate and you are not an AmeriCorps member or student in social work you can fill out a DV certificate program study form. We work with students from many disciplines, both graduate and undergraduate.
