If you are passionate about using your expertise to help create a world where all victims are healed, please read on!


The Technology and Education Coordinator is responsible for increasing staff, volunteers, interns, and the community’s level of learning engagement by use of technology through various multimedia tools including but not limited to, learning management systems, interactive computerized scenarios and production of short videos and webinars.

Online Learning Management
Victim Assistance Program is the only victim service agency in our community using an online learning management system to enhance the learning experience for professionals in our field. The problem… we aren’t very techy! We’ve managed to navigate through our system since The Summit Victim Assistance Academy went online in 2016 but we don’t have the skills to maximize our own resources. Will you help?

  • Use the ISpring Solutions software program to supercharge PowerPoint and video presentations to engage learners
  • You will have the use of professional lighting, cameras, Adobe Creative Cloud apps, microphones, Audacity, sound studio, green screen, and more, to make videos, talking heads, animation, sound clips, or whatever else you desire!
  • Create, develop, produce, and manage SCORMS in ISpring to be uploaded to the TalentLMS system
  • Become proficient enough in the TalentLMS and ISpring systems to teach us how to continue maximizing the programs
  • Assist in the process of hosting and marketing one webinar using the resources we have for the very first time

Summit Victim Assistance Academy
We have an Education Department with years of expertise and experience, some who are certified to train on the national level! We currently market and provide education to Ohio professionals but we want to expand across the country with your help.

  • Provide LMS technical support on behalf of the department to participants enrolled in our June, July and August ‘The Essentials’ courses as well as new staff, interns and volunteers joining our team this summer
  • Assist with administrative functions of the Summit Victim Assistance Academy (SVAA)
  • Add content, manage and maintain new user profiles in the agency’s online Learning Management System


At this stage of the game, VAP needs someone who knows what they are doing. We’ll train you on services and agency stuff, but you need to know how to teach yourself a new software program, maximize its use, and then teach us how to sustain it.

  • Bachelor’s degree preferred (or close to achieving). A degree in a digital media related field is desired.
  • Experience in graphic design and video production
  • Proficient in Adobe Cloud Suite Apps
  • Proficient in PowerPoint
  • Remain proficient in the use of modern technology and digital communications
  • Clean state and federal background check

Things to think about before applying

All employees of Victim Assistance Program must appreciate the potential physical and psychological impact VAP employment may have on their personal lives.

Employees may witness, observe, smell, and hear disturbing sights and sounds including but not limited to crime scenes, pictures of abuse, and recordings of violent incidents. Secondly, employees may be exposed to situations which could potentially result in physical harm from victims and/or aggressors. Both are concerns primarily of direct service victim advocates, but any employee can be exposed to these situations from time to time. In addition, all employees of Victim Assistance Program are required to respond 24/7/365 to the needs of victims of extreme and catastrophic incidents impacting Summit County. This rare response from the administrative staff would be for administrative support and logistics.

As our goal is to respond to trauma, we do not engage in prevention, nor do we engage in activism. To ensure every victim is provided with unbiased support, our agency remains neutral on most social justice issues. We work extremely close with local law enforcement; we are a pro police agency and expect all our employees to strengthen our mission by respecting the work of law enforcement in our community.

Taking Care of Our Own

We aspire to ensure the needs of our employees are always identified. Employees are provided above average compensation compared to similar Ohio nonprofits. We strive to provide employees with beautiful, trauma informed office settings, new furniture, up to date technology, security, expansive training programs, Verizon Wireless cell phone discounts and an employee assistance program including 6 free confidential counseling sessions.

Our newly renovated main office in downtown Akron is within walking distance to the courts, police station, restaurants, shops, and the towpath trails. The space includes an education training facility, trauma free room, a distraction free room, and two staff conference rooms. A rich benefit package is also provided to full time employees. This includes 3 weeks of PTO, 11.5 paid holiday days off, medical coverage, dental & vision coverage, pet insurance, and a 401k retirement plan with matching contributions.

It is our belief that if employees are taken care of, then victims will receive superior services… and that is our goal.
