Have Some Fun Before You Begin

Our entire staff worked hard on recording the online modules for our new initial Victim Service Provider training curriculum for the Victim Advocates at our Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs) and Multidisciplinary (MDT) members across the state. This training will allow our victim advocates to meet both South Carolina Victim Service Provider training requirements and meet the National Children's Alliance accreditation standards for victim advocacy as well. Here is a short 2 minute video with some bloopers and outtakes from our 2 day video production.
