Community Helpers Adult Program
Training for adult groups can occur either as private organizational functions or by registration in an open community workshop. Training is typically offered as a 2-day workshop; however, depending on the requested modules, training may be accommodated in a 1-day workshop.
For Adult Groups or Professional Organizations:
- We recommend one contact person to act as the leading liaison for the training.
- Self-registration for interested individuals is required.
- All presentations require the use of a computer and LCD projector.
