In an effort to meet the ongoing training needs and to best support Yukon non-profit agencies, VBY offers regular training in Whitehorse and on-line training workshops all covering topics of importance to non-profits. If you or your agency has a request for specific training needs, please contact VBY and we will do our best to offer a training session on your suggested issue or topic.
A number of local professionals, who specialise in various areas of interest to non-profit agencies’ boards and staff, donate their time to deliver training workshops to VBY members throughout the Yukon.
