TA Requests

DCRCC is available to provide training on a range of topics related to sexual violence prevention and intervention that affect child, youth and adult survivors, including youth development, systems of oppression, crisis support, child sexual assault, vicarious trauma, and many related topics. We work with individuals and organizations to select a format for training that is compatible with your stated goals. Examples range from comprehensive to subject specific trainings for staff, panel discussions, keynotes, ongoing workshops, conference presentations, and intergenerational programming. We are committed to supporting families, and accordingly, open all of our trainings to children and youth.

We provide trainings through several primary channels:

  1. One Time Requests
  2. A Corps of Community Educators
  3. Short Term Workshop Series
  4. Reoccurring Programming
  5. Volunteer and Graduate Student Training Classes
  6. Public Workshops
  7. Interagency Collaborations

All requests are considered based on availability, subject matter compatibility and associated costs. The preferred way to communicate your request is via a detailed email. We encourage that all communicated requests provide ample notice, and flexibility on your timeline and scope of work for fastest and most effective responses. All and presentation training requests will be responded to with a request for a phone consultation as an initial next step.



How much does it cost to book a presenter?

We normally expect those requesting our services to meet the speaker’s travel and accommodation costs. These arrangements will be agreed upon between you and DCRCC, directly.

T&TA fees can depend on a number of different factors, including: the type of organization and nature of an event (for-profit vs. not-for-profit), how far a speaker has to travel, length and number of presentations, preparation required, and demand for a speaker’s services. Negotiation of cost will be determined once a request is made.

Submit a Training Request

If you feel that the DCRCC can be of assistance to your program, we invite you to email, providing a description of what you are looking for. If you are unable to describe your exact requirements at this time, our staff can also help you define those needs. One of our staff members will respond to you promptly, review your request, and determine the next steps.
