RBLP’s #GivingBack program is bringing on board a variety of outstanding nonprofits this year, offering RBLP leadership certifications at no cost. Today we’re thrilled to announce that we are certifying team members from the National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA).

NOVA’s highlight of the year is their Annual Training Event, an inspiring 4 days of workshops, keynote speeches, networking and more. Through this event, NOVA offers over 100 workshops on a diverse set of topics in the field and dynamic speakers who share their mission to uphold dignity and compassion for survivors of crime.

Throughout the year, NOVA provides a variety of professional development and training opportunities to support those working with victims/survivors of trauma. Despite the many challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020 NOVA was proud to train nearly 10,000 individuals in all 50 states and across the globe through their live webinars, virtual events and online academies. In 2021, they have plans to provide enhanced professional development and connection opportunities both at home and abroad as they create new and innovative ways to support the victim assistance community and the survivors they serve.

NOVA’s staff are being instructed by Rosette Obedoza, who volunteered her time to teach the exam prep training course.
