Adult Learning Sessions

In addition to the courses on the calendar and on-line, we also offer learning sessions designed to enhance your leadership experience and support your role as a volunteer. We have made an effort to schedule sessions throughout the council area and hope you will plan to attend as your schedule permits. As a key volunteer, you are invited to attend any of the sessions provided.
