Training Centre

Welcome to the RCRG Training Centre!

  • The great thing about the non-profit sector is that anyone can get involved. If there’s a cause you care about, there’s an organization to match, and countless ways you can offer your support. One of the best ways is by acquiring skills that every organization needs. That’s where RCRG can help. Below, you'll find a complete list of our workshops and training courses, covering everything from volunteer management to fundraising to board governance. Also included are workshops offered by our Child Care Resource & Referral Centre.
  • If a course has been scheduled, you can register for it right away by clicking the corresponding link. When you click on a course that hasn't been scheduled, you'll have the option of adding your name to the wait list, so we can contact you when we offer it again. Pretty simple, right? We hope so, because the less time you spend on the registration process, the more time you'll have to learn new skills and put them to use in the community.
