Upcoming Workshops

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 covering all 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 specialize in various areas of interest to non-profit agencies’ Boards and staff, donate their time to deliver training workshops to VBY members throughout Yukon.
