GSWPA sees the need to customize your trainings for Journeys, grade levels and more, so let us come to you for your group trainings!
You can gather several service units and hold one training for the full benefit of group interaction, face-to-face and learning at its best! You are in the driver’s seat and can plan as many or little Training by Request sessions. We’ll provide the facilitator, supplies and location, while you provide the audience – new and seasoned adults who need to learn. Gather 10 volunteers, consider possible locations, dates and times and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some courses are offered online, as a self study or as a Webinar. Folllow the link for detailed information.
