Violence Intervention Program Facilitator

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on May 28, 2015

Volunteers are needed to co-facilitate a certified "Batterer's Intervention" program designed to change the behavior and attitudes of those responsible for acts of domestic violence and to eliminate future violent behavior.

Curriculum is provided and covers topics such as: Understanding Crime and Violence, the Cycle of Violence, Personal Violence Prevention, Accountability and Responsibility, Communication, Alternatives to Violence and Control, and the Effects of Domestic Violence. Each program runs once a week in the evening for 18-weeks.

As a member of Virginians Against Domestic Violence, OAR's Violence Intervention Program (VIP) is designed to be consistent with "best practice" standards adopted by the state of Virginia.
The Violence Intervention Program has been fully certified under these state-wide standards since 2002
Familiarity with Domestic Violence Program materials and group facilitation a plus; but will train the right volunteer.
More info about the program:
The Violence Intervention Program (VIP) is an 18- week, referral-based intervention program designed to aid in the reduction and elimination of domestic violence in Northern Virginia.

The classes are held in the OAR office in Fairfax.
