Do you want to engage your staff and volunteers in training sessions? Do you want the material to stick long after the training ends? Experiential learning helps make any training, whether in-person or online, more fun and impactful for both new and veteran employees and volunteers. This session will provide a variety of training activities that can be used as openers, energizers, reinforcers and powerful learning tools for all types of learners.
