Training and Online Support

Adult learning opportunities are loaded with information to help you succeed in your volunteer position and are a great way to network with other volunteers.

Because we believe that training is critical for a successful volunteer experience, we are working to diversify our training portfolio. We now offer classes both in person and online. Through our all-new e-learning site, you can check training off your to-do list any time, day or night! We will be continually adding to our portfolio of online classes, so be sure to create your account and check back regularly.

Leadership Summits are the biggest of these events and occur in several locations around the state. In addition to great learning opportunities, Leadership Summits are a great way for all volunteers to get energized with keynote speakers and networking opportunities.
