Helping Teen Victims of Crime
- Web Training

The Teen Victim Initiative is excited to announce the launch of our powerful new Web training series on helping teen victims of crime. Over the next several months, national and local experts will present on ten topics free of charge to help victim assistance providers, law enforcement personnel, and other allied professionals provide informed, culturally competent, and developmentally appropriate responses to teen victims and their families. The National Center for Victims of Crime is providing these trainings with the support of a grant awarded by the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.

Registration is free, but spots are limited. To register or to access training materials, visit ncvc.webex.com. For assistance, please contact Mira Krivoshey at 202-467-8747 or mkrivoshey@ncvc.org.
