Rural Programs COP (managing programs in Rural or Frontier Communities)

Rural Community of Practice 
Volunteer Engagement Professionals in small towns face unique challenges and opportunities that aren’t always addressed by advice intended for city-based audiences. There are also fewer opportunities to connect with others doing similar work across the country. That’s what led to the creation of AL!VE’s Community of Practice (CoP) for volunteer engagement professionals in rural communities.
2022 Meetings will be held:   
All times 2 PM Eastern: 
January 18
