What is the Friendship Centre Training Program?

The BCAAFC is providing free online training for any and all Friendship Centre staff. These sessions are based on input directly from Friendship Centres and our team at BCAAFC. All Friendship Centre staff will have the opportunity to enroll in theses online training sessions!

With these free training sessions we strive to support personal growth as well as capacity building for all of our highly valued Friendship Centre Staff! We hope that this training initiative provides more resources and less burden on Friendship Centres. Workshops, courses, and seminars vary in length to suit what works for you. These sessions vary from one hour, one full day, two half-days, and month long courses!
