Courses should assist volunteers to obtain the skills and qualifications needed to support their volunteering roles or to meet the identified training needs of the local community.
Funding from the $80,000 Free Volunteer Training Grants program is available to eligible South Australian volunteer resource centres, councils, training providers and not-for-profit incorporated community organisations.
