Savings Fitness for Advocates @ Webinar
Jan 27 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Across the country, advocates work tirelessly to improve the lives of others, yet sometimes we don’t make the time to secure our own futures. NNEDV, NCRDV and US Department Labor are joining together to increase advocate knowledge and improve access to long?term security through retirement planning.

Planning for a secure retirement can be challenging, but the sooner you start the easier it will be. It may feel like there are many demands on your income: credit card debt, school loans, car payments or your children’s education. Although it is important to save for these shortterm goals, it is important to remember to save for longterm goals like retirement as well.

Here is one simple way to get you on the road to financial security. Join us as we explain how you can use EBSA’s new interactive worksheets to set goals, start a budget, manage debt, and determine how much to save for a secure financial future. Our Savings Fitness webcast starts you on the way to setting goals and putting your retirement high on the list of personal priorities.

Who should attend? Anyone who wants to make saving for retirement a priority!

Teen Survivor Support Groups: Promoting Resilience and Empowerment @ Webinar
Feb 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

How do you craft a psychoeducational support group for teen survivors of sexual abuse and assault that addresses their unique needs and acknowledges the effects of sexual violence in their lives? What practical steps do you need to take in forming and facilitating these support groups to keep them securely anchored in the values of our field? This webinar focuses on facilitator-tested steps to use empowerment-based advocacy principles, an anti-oppression framework, and trauma-informed approaches, with survivors leading the way.


Learning Objectives:

1. Integrate empowerment-based advocacy principles into teen survivor support groups.

2. Use the principles of trauma-informed services to shape support group practice.

3. Apply an understanding of oppression issues to create an accessible and inclusive group.
