Training and Technical Assistance

The focus of INJ’s training workshops and seminars is on identifying and strengthening the capacity of victim services organizations in Indian Country.  Our training is designed from the concept that services to victims of crime are only as strong and sustainable as the service provider team.  The Institute for Native Justice E-Learning Center combined with in-person training and technical assistance provides a multi-level approach to education services.  If you would like more information, please use our online request form.
