CCASA’s new Regional Training & Assistance Program (RTAP) is seeking applications for Regional Specialists with expertise in sexual assault advocacy. Five Regional Specialists from CCASA member agencies will be selected as contractors in summer 2014 to provide ongoing training and technical assistance within their membership region and statewide.
Regional Specialists will participate in a train-the-trainer program provided by CCASA staff and partners, and they will be representing CCASA—not their agency—when providing training and technical assistance through this program. Frequency of training and assistance provided by each Regional Specialist will be determined by CCASA staff. This contracted position is not meant to replace or supplement hours already being worked at a CCASA member agency.
Qualified applicants will have both regional experience as well as experience within a specific area of service provision (i.e. serving survivors with developmental disabilities, SART development, advocacy to Spanish-speaking survivors, support groups, etc.).
Qualified applicants will have a minimum of three-five years of experience providing direct service sexual assault advocacy as well as experience providing instruction, conducting training and/or presenting on sexual assault, victim advocacy or related victim issues.
Qualified applicants must complete and pass a criminal history check, and will participate in an interview and selection process. Selected individuals will be offered a one-year contract (based on the calendar year) with CCASA to provide paid services. Regional Specialists are paid at a rate of $50/hour for training and technical assistance delivery and $20/hour for training preparation, planning, and travel. CCASA anticipates that Regional Specialists will be needed for approximately 30 hours during the remaining 2014 calendar year.
