For volunteers and anyone interested, we’ve lined up a series of training in the Communications, PR, Journalism and Media fields. Some are free, others have a small fee attached for tea breaks, materials or other costs.

Click on each class to find out more or to register. All classes are classified into two main tracks – Communications (Journalism, Writing, Web editing, WordPress, PR) and Media (video, photography, audio, music, design). We are definitely looking to add more classes on design and audio, especially mixing and recording.
