On-Site Training Sessions

This service is available to organizations interested in adding to their volunteer resource management toolbox. We are happy to present a workshop on-site, on your premises or as part of a special event (a conference, staff training day, etc.). and to tailor the content to respond to your organization’s needs, concerns, and particular interests. Offering training to volunteers, staff and board members is an excellent way to enhance skills and motivation, as well as to promote a sense of unity of purpose within your organization. Please contact us to have more information about that service.
