InitLive Academy - New Courses Added!

LearningAcademyCoverPhoto2 copy

InitLive Academy has just launched seven new self-paced training courses, designed to walk administrators through each function of the volunteer management lifecycle. 

These new courses divide the upfront learning time into manageable sections and provide a smoother learning experience that directly applies to the lifecycle stage that each administrator is currently in. 



The volunteer management lifecycle has five key functions that each require different techniques and strategies for successful execution.  Every new course is designed to coach administrators through each stage of this process.
