Volunteer Training

Training Needed

We need to ensure the safety and well-being of participants in Swenson College Outreach activities, therefore it's important that all of our volunteers receive the appropriate training.

We've done our best to make the process as straightforward and convenient as possible, so many of the steps can be done in your own time.

Canvas-based training

Allow ~2 hours total for training and be sure to complete all training at least a week before your event.
