Community training

Sharpen your skills by joining Yarra's free community training program.

Different sessions are run throughout the year to support not-for profit and community organisations in Yarra to help them run as effectively as possible. 

This is a great opportunity for people involved in local community organisations to seek advice and information about how to apply for grants, managing relationships, project management and media strategies.

The program is aimed at community leaders, managers, coordinators, volunteers, members of management committees or people considering joining management committees of not-for profit community organisations.

All training sessions are free, however bookings are essential.

Please note - these workshops are not recorded due to the interactive style of delivery.
