Training and Workshops

The Volunteer Centre hosts several workshops over the year. Check back here often to find out what’s coming up next!

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid Basic training is intended for adults interacting with adults (18 years and older). This course focuses on the four most common mental health disorders including substance-related, mood-related, anxiety and trauma-related, and psychotic disorders. Participants who take this course are well prepared to interact confidently about mental health with their family, friends, communities, and workplaces.

Just like physical First Aid, we use Mental Health First Aid when supporting someone with an emerging mental health problem or in a mental health crisis until appropriate treatment is found or the situation is resolved.

This is a two day workshop and you must attend both days)

Board Development Program

In collaboration with the City of St. Albert, Recreation and Parks and Alberta Culture and Tourism, the St. Albert Community Information and Volunteer Centre present The Board Development Program.

As a board member of a non-for-profit organization, have you ever wondered….
– What are my legal and ethical responsibilities?
– What role do I play in governing our organization?
– How can our board organize its work fairly and efficiently, to avoid volunteer and staff burnout?
– How can we develop policies that will help us make consistent decisions?
– How can we encourage teamwork between board and staff?
– What things can we do to have our board run more effectively and efficiently?
– What is the relationship between the board and the E.D.?

If you are a new board member wanting to learn more about your role, or an experienced board member wishing to enhance your skills and work effectively as a board member, then…
THIS IS THE WORKSHOP FOR YOU!
