Welcome to the National Center for Victims of Crime’s online learning platform.

Overview

The National Center for Victims of Crime is the nation’s leading resource and advocacy organization for victims of all types of crime, regardless of whether the crime is physical, emotional, or financial. Since our founding in 1985, we have played a critical role in shaping the national discussion on the impact of crime and what victims need in order to recover, and we have helped many people understand that justice for crime victims involves more than holding offenders accountable for their crimes. In short, our mission is to forge a national commitment to help victims of crime rebuild their lives by serving the victims, their families, and their communities.

Through the support of the federal government, the National Center was able to create this online learning platform for victim service providers and other allied professionals who serve crime victims.

Our goal is for victim service providers to use these trainings so they can better help victims of crime, as well as bring attention to the enduring and emerging issues in the field.
