Sharpen your skills by joining Yarra's free community training program. Different sessions are run throughout the year to support these 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, governance, financial management, and media strategies.
