19th Judicial Circuit Victim Services and Sexual Assault Assistance Program

"Girlvolution" Mentorship Program

We are looking for successful, enthusiastic women in our community to join us in a Girlvolution. We are partnering with Pace School for Girls in St. Lucie County to provide a mentorship program for teen girls ages 13-18. As a mentor, you will partner with a student to work on a 12-week social justice project focusing on challenges and opportunities for girls and women in our society. Examples of topics the girls are interested in include:

  • Women in Leadership
  • Advocating for Marginalized Populations
  • Understanding Criminal Justice System
  • Career Development and research
  • Adulting 101
  • Tips for public speaking
The mentorship will culminate in a one-day Workshop where each girl will give a presentation on her topic. The weekly sessions will be 75 minutes long and held with your mentee via Zoom. We will be holding an informational session via ZOOM during the first week of October. For more information about this exciting project please email Ali Rockwell, Volunteer Coordinator at Arockwell@so19.org

Mission Statement

The State Attorney’s Office Victim Services Program is dedicated to Victims and their families. Through our care and support we strive to protect their dignity and rights. Our goal is to sensitize the law enforcement community and the public to these Victim’s needs through education and example. The Sexual Assault Assistance Program’s mission is to provide a coordinated, collaborative, and multidisciplinary approach to sexual violence on the Treasure Coast. Our goal is to provide sexual assault survivors (reporting and non-reporting) with the services and support to lead them toward empowerment and reconnection.

Description

The State Attorney's Office Victim Services Program and Sexual Assault Assistance Program of the Treasure Coast both provide crisis intervention, advocacy, accompaniment and referrals to Victims in Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie Counties.
The Sexual Assault Assistance Program was founded in 1981 to provide advocacy for Sexual Assault Victims. Sexual Assault Advocates work with reporting and non-reporting victims of Sexual Violence. Sexual Assault Volunteer Victim Advocates are needed to meet victims at the hospital, accompany victims to law enforcement interviews, provide crisis intervention and referrals to victims. On-call hours are available 24 hrs a day. Volunteers may also answer the 24 hours Sexual Assault Helpline or work tabling events for the Sexual Assault Program providing outreach to the community. All Sexual Assault Advocate Volunteers must complete a 30 hr online training which includes role-playing activities.
Victim Assistance Program volunteers are needed to act as Victim Advocates for crime victims going through the court system. Advocates will call victims to notify them of hearings and court dates, provide crisis intervention, information and referrals, help victims fill out crimes compensation forms and accompany victims to court.
