Sexual Offense Support Victim Advocates
Posted on May 12, 2017 at: 3:16 pm
We accept applications for new volunteers every fall and conduct mandatory training in January. Formal training will enable them to present classroom programs, facilitate kiosks, as well as design new programs or events, and provide support to victims of sexual misconduct.
Who Are We
Launched in 1976, S.O.S. was created through a grassroots collaboration between staff and students to provide victims of sexual misconduct with crisis and advocacy services and to provide the campus with education around these topics. S.O.S. believes in empowering individuals and groups to respond to survivors of sexual misconduct in ways that are confidential, empathetic, and non-judgmental.
What We Do
- S.O.S. provides victim advocacy and crisis intervention for survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, and stalking via the UD Helpline 24/7/365.
- S.O.S. also provides interactive programs about asking for consent, gender-based violence, how to help a victim, and more. We support Sexual Assault Prevention & Education programs & collaborate on campus-wide events.
