Confidential Advocacy and Support

Peer Support Volunteer Program

Xavier’s Confidential Peer Support Volunteers are trained student leaders who provide trauma-informed support services for student survivors of power-based violence, including sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and sexual harassment. 

Support Services - Spring 2022

  1. Survivor Support Groups
  2. "How to Support a Friend" Workshops
  3. Confidential Peer Support for Events that Address PBV

Our Mission

We believe, respect, and support survivors, whether they are seeking safety, healing, or justice. We recognize the uniqueness and wholeness of each person and we support all movements that empower marginalized groups knowing that this includes survivors as well. As a program, we endeavor to cultivate empathy and foster a culture of caring for one another.
