What's Happening in Greater Minnesota

Julie Vreeland
The next Greater Minnesota Volunteer Impact Leadership Training (VILT) Series is in St. Cloud, March 4-5, 2019 and sponsored by the St. Cloud Area Volunteer network. Scholarships for this Series are available through the St. Cloud and Brainerd Volunteer networks, thanks to training funds from the Initiative Foundation in Little Falls. Registration and scholarship information is on the MAVA website. $500 is available in the St. Cloud area and $250 in the Brainerd area. Each network will determine the scholarship recipients and present them with a check for $50. Scholarship recipients will pay the full amount when registering on the MAVA website.

We are currently looking for one or two more locations to host the VILT Series in Greater Minnesota. This training does pay hosting organizations and is a great way to get additional training for yourself or staff members. Please contact me if you are interested or would like more information. 

I am also setting up trainings about working with skills-based volunteers around Minnesota and currently talking with members to set up training in their area. Watch for updated trainings over the next several months and information on our quarterly District Councils. I look forward to working with you during 2019.
