 In 1999, COVA received a grant from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) in Washington, D.C. to establish the Colorado Victim Assistance Academy (CVAA). The CVAA was modeled on the curriculum established by OVC for use in the National Victim Assistance Academy. The purpose of the Academy is to provide basic victim advocacy training to people working with victims of crime.  The curriculum embraces the entire scope of victim services, and has been enhanced to address unique and specific issues in Colorado. 


The registration fee for CVAA is $375. This includes the self-study curriculum, all written materials for classroom modules, morning coffee, afternoon snacks, one luncheon, and completion certificate. Participants will pay for their own lodging, food, and travel expenses. 

SOME PARTIAL ($100) SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE.  Applications are due by March 14, 2014.
