Training Resources

State community action associations are the primary source for meeting local community action agencies’ training needs. National partners such as the National Community Action Partnership, NASCSP, CAPLAW, National Community Action Foundation and others also offer training in support of community action and its programs. Please see the Links page to access state associations and national partners.

The National Community Action Partnership operates the National Training Center, a web-based resource for the network that includes a calendar of scheduled events, a consultant bank, a resource bank and discussion forums.

You also may use the Training Request to provide input on training needs you think should be addressed at the regional conference. Your input will be forwarded to the Region VI Conference program committee.
