Become a Peer Advocate


RDVIC, in partnership with WELLWVU have created a unique and valuable opportunity for WVU students. As a result of a grant awarded by the Department of Justice, WVU students can apply to be volunteers who assist in advocating for students who are victims of violence. Selected students will attend a 20-hour training session with special guests to learn about their role as Peer Advocates.
