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.

Volunteer Bénévoles Yukon (VBY), Humane Society Yukon and Little Footprints Big Steps Child Protection are inviting you to an information session about a second hand store idea that could be managed by non-profit organizations.
