A Governor’s Victim Service Pathfinder Award is the most prestigious award that Pennsylvania gives to a victim service professional or program.  The award may be presented to one program and up to seven individuals who have made notable contributions to the program for which they work, the community they serve, or the field of victim services. 


The 2017 Governor’s Victim Service Pathfinder Awards will be presented at the 2017 Pathways for Victim Services Conference, which will be held from May 8-10, 2017, at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania.


The selection process for recipients of the Governor’s Victim Service Pathfinder Award is highly competitive.  Therefore, to be considered, each nomination must meet the criteria and eligibility exactly as outlined.
