What is a State Victim Assistance Academy?
A State Victim Assistance Academy (SVAA) is a week-long, intensive foundation course of study in victimology and victim's rights and services.
SVAAs are operated in partnership with an academic institution. They are designed to meet the entry-level educational needs of a broad range of victim assistance providers and allied professionals (generally with 1 to 5 years of experience). SVAAs provide comprehensive, fundamental, and academically based education.
