Outreach & Training

DVP offers free education to service providers and the community at large.

Our attorneys and advocates offer training, workshops, and legal clinics both virtually and on-site at schools, hospitals, other agencies and local libraries throughout the five boroughs of NYC.

We provide education opportunities through staff training, workshops, and technical assistance in group and individual environments. In a typical month, our staff hosts 10 education and outreach events to varying size groups.

  • DV101

  • Financial Abuse
  • How to E-File Family Offense Petitions
