WHAT: Each free training is approximately two and a half hours long, and will offer practical information, skills, and outreach strategies to those new to the program or wanting a refresher. More information will be sent out closer to each training date.

WHO: You! A broad range of organizations and people are invited to attend, including those from community action agencies, area agencies on aging, food shelves, community meal sites, schools, health clinics and hospitals, churches, senior centers, shelters, veteran organizations, housing authorities, child care centers, and more.  Whether you do direct application assistance or just interact with low-income Vermonters, this training is for you!
