Anti-Violence Advocates Training

Anti-Violence Advocates (AVA) training is designed to educate Penn staff and faculty on the dynamics of relationship violence, sexual harassment, sexual violence, and stalking, and the resources available on campus, to better advise and support students. The training will include interactive sessions and presenters from campus resources. AVA intends to provide foundational knowledge about violence, build a supportive community, and collectively shift how we think about violence and harm.

Individuals who complete the full training will receive a certificate of completion and can choose to be identified as AVAs so that students know where they can find effective and safe support. Completing AVA does not make one a confidential resource for students or fulfill any University training requirements for employees related to campus policies, Title IX, or the Clery Act. Past participants should consider registering if you have not attended in the past three years.
