AL!VE Academy

AL!VE provides training and networking opportunities through our AL!VE Academy webinars.

The AL!VE Webinar Training Series provides high-quality, affordable 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 webinar workshops on a wide variety of topics, conducted by world class trainers.  As new classes are scheduled, they will be added to the AL!VE website and featured in future communications.  The cost of the webinars will vary depending on the topic and the presenter, but the majority will be FREE for AL!VE members, or $20 for members and $40 for non members.  We encourage you to JOIN AL!VE to save 50% off our webinars and to take advantage of member roundtable series. 

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 next regional roundtable.

AL!VE also supports training that enhances the nonprofit sector and members' professional development. Visit our AL!VE Calendar of Events for additional training and conference opportunities and submit upcoming training and conferences in your area.
