Court Advocacy Intern
At the YWCA Oklahoma City, our survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and harassment will seek assistance in gathering legal information and crisis intervention. If you seek to expand your skills within the social services field and gain knowledge on court advocacy, then this position is for you!
By becoming a Court Advocate Intern, you must be a compassionate listener and provide strong verbal & written communication as you will help clients with safety planning, referrals and guide them in their pursuit of a Victim's Protection Order (VPO).
In this position, Court Advocates must maintain the confidentiality and integrity of our client's sensitive information at all times. You and a supervisor will meet regularly to discuss and report any required information and services for clients. Your verbal and writing skills will be further used to complete documentation to assure compliance with the criteria.
Our Court Advocates are the emotional support and encouragement needed for clients to receive appropriate court information successfully. The YWCA OKC Team hopes you will join us in providing resources and court education to our survivors!
