Tribal Response and Court Enhancement Strategies Project (TRACES)

Advocate Online Training (AOT)

AOT is the first online training created to meet the needs of domestic violence and sexual assault advocates living and working in remote tribal and rural areas. This project, when completed, will offer skills based core competency through an online training institute, the INJ E-Center. Courses will also be made available on DVD for trainees who do not have adequate Internet connectivity.

Jump Start

Jump Start provides OVW grantees with the opportunity to build foundational skills through onsite workshops and technical assistance. INJ can also help Jump Start an existing project which needs an infusion of direction and planning. Restarting projects experience unique challenges in reaching program objectives and goals.

Native Voices

The Native Voices film project will provide domestic violence and sexual assault intervention and response training for law enforcement, prosecution, tribal councils, and advocates. This film series will feature Native American actors and specific nuances of working in Indian Country.
