AL!VE Academy provides high-quality educational opportunities specifically designed to assist leaders in volunteer engagement in building and strengthening their leadership, management and technical skills.  Throughout the year, AL!VE features   a wide variety of topics, conducted by world class trainers and peers in the field.  As new classes are scheduled, they will be added to the AL!VE calendar.  Once complete, members only side of our website to view on demand. AL!VE webinars are FREE for AL!VE members; the general public is welcome to attend for $25 per webinar.

We also offer training opportunities through our AL!VE Communities of Practice (COP), a small, interactive and idea sharing forum specifically designed to benefit leaders in volunteer engagement.  The COP offers our members a way to gain new perspectives and learn practical ideas while networking with other AL!VE members.  Throughout the year, AL!VE will feature forums on a wide variety of topics, facilitated by experienced peers in the field of volunteer engagement. See our calendar for the COP.
