Program Structure

Program Structure

FRVS consists of a Board of Directors, Program Manager, paid staff, RCMP liaison officers, and a team of dedicated volunteer Advocates and Court Support Workers.

Volunteer support is essential to our Association to ensure victims receive support and assistance. Our volunteer Board of Directors provides program governance, while volunteer Advocates play a front-line role, directly interacting with victims, police, and other agencies.

Advocates are required to complete an extensive training program, obtain an enhanced security clearance from the RCMP, successfully complete interviews with program staff and the RCMP, complete a Government of Alberta online course, and are required to sign a one year contract with our program.

The required training that Advocates complete provides them with the skills necessary to participate in this important and satisfying role.
