The Domestic Violence Academy (DV Academy)

The SafeNest DV Academy is designed to teach five emotional first aid skills:  Care & Comfort, Protect & Support, Educate, Connect, and Build Hope. Cohorts (classes) are led by subject matter advocates/experts and mental health professionals. The DV Academy is an immersive training combining classroom and in-field experience. Each training session is called a cohort and consists of six classes and 12 shifts of shadowing first responder advocates.
