The Online Learning Academy provides a variety of educational opportunities for advocates, allied partners and others wishing to expand their knowledge of issues related to domestic violence. The online training materials may be in the form of modules, courses, videos, quizzes and other learning methods.

Caucuses & Task Forces

The Ohio Domestic Violence Network supports local member programs through sponsoring task forces and caucuses that address the ways in which domestic violence impacts different communities and groups of people. Caucuses and task forces are made up of professionals, service providers, advocates, and community members who are interested in issues related to specific underserved populations. ODVN has task forces addressing domestic violence and disabilities, domestic violence and immigration, and domestic violence in the LGBTQI community. ODVN also facilitates the Women of Color and Child Advocacy Caucus.
