The goal of these calls is to provide an opportunity for volunteers, coaches and instructors to pose questions, get answers, discuss challenges, and share successes as you fulfill your roles. In turn, committees can use the information shared to help build a repository of best practices for each of our coaches, instructor and volunteer positions. 

Mark your calendars for the next educational webinar(s)

 

Calls are scheduled at 8:00 PM Eastern for one hour and are tentatively scheduled on Thursdays of each month, with the exception of September and December. Registration links will be provided below for each discussion topic. Contact volunteer services for more information.
