CARE Advocates (Formerly PAAVE)

CARE Advocates is a group dedicated to providing advocacy services to UNLV via the CARE Line (Campus Advocacy Resource and Empowerment), a 24-hour, free, and confidential hotline for victims, survivors, and secondary victims of sexual assault, domestic or relationship violence, and stalking. We also facilitate a peer education program, formerly PAAVE, which encourages action towards ending interpersonal violence through awareness and prevention.

Our mission is to grant access to knowledge, increase sensitivity, and change individual attitudes about interpersonal violence through presentations, discussions, and workshops around campus activism and violence prevention. To accomplish our mission, our program utilizes the latest developments in the anti-violence movement.

CARE Advocates go through an extensive 35-hour training program covering topics including relationship violence, consent, drug facilitated rape, and more. Training dates are scheduled every January and July. If you are interested in becoming a CARE Advocate, please contact Ashlyn Gray at 702-895-0604 or

We are no longer accepting applications for the Spring 2015 CARE Advocacy Training. The next training (Summer) will be held in July 2015.
Applications for the Summer Training are due May 15, 2015.
