DECEMBER 13 - 15, 2022

Connect | Learn | Grow

A new and free opportunity for students entering the workforce, professionals interested in a career change and advocates looking for professional growth.

NOVA’s National Advocacy Leadership Center (NALC) is excited to host our 2nd Annual Bilingual Virtual Career Development Fair. This free event will be offered online December 13th-15th 2022.

NOVA’s Annual Bilingual Virtual Career Development Fair provides an opportunity for students, new advocates and other professionals interested in the advocacy field to advance their professional growth.

Individuals will have the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge about the field of victim advocacy and crisis response, understand the variety of positions and organizations in which advocates serve, and have the opportunity to build connections with other aspiring advocates.

A diverse group of agency partners will provide participants with information about current services and how aspiring advocates and crisis responders might join in such important efforts.

NOVA Members will have the added benefit of registering for one-on-one resume reviews and professional development discussions with NOVA mentors in Spanish and English! Spots are limited and will be first come, first serve!

Save the Date for this comprehensive professional development opportunity! Sign up for our mailing list to receive updates.
