Volunteers, coaches, and instructors pose questions, discuss challenges, get answers, and share successes related to their roles. In turn, committees use the information shared to build a repository of best practices for coaches, instructors, and volunteers. 

Mark your calendars for the next educational webinar(s)

Calls take place on Thursdays at 8:00 PM Eastern (except for September and December). They last for about one hour. Registration links will be provided below for each discussion topic. Contact volunteer services for more information.
