nbCC to Offer Community Outreach Volunteer Training

Northern Berkshire Community Coalition (nbCC) is seeking community-minded individuals to take part in a free Community Outreach and Civic Engagement training program.

The training will take place over a 6-month period and meet every Thursday from 5:30pm to 8pm beginning February 14, 2019. As part of the training, participants will learn about the many health and human service providers and community organizations in the northern Berkshire region. In many instances they will become the critical link between services and residents.

In addition, participants will engage in workshops and training on topics such as different styles of leadership, effective communication and marketing, professional writing, community organizing through assessment and mapping, conflict management, and other related topics.

 If you are interested in participating or would like to learn more about the training, you may visit the nbCC website for an application and a Frequently Asked Questions sheet. Application submissions are now being accepted through January 18, 2019. For more information, call Glenda at 413-663-7588 or email gmcarter@nbccoalition.org.
