Training AY Group offer training for all its volunteers, this will enable the volunteer to:  Training helps new volunteers get to know the people, the program, and the job quickly and efficiently.  Training your volunteers establishes that there is a minimum competency that all volunteers are expected to obtain.  Many volunteers see training as a benefit of being part of an organization. Training teaches them skills that may be helpful to them elsewhere, and may even help them get a paying job.  Training publicly acknowledges a necessary level of proficiency. By training your volunteers, you are making the statement that the organization is professional and capable of doing important work and doing it well.  Some organizations use training as a "weeding out" technique, making sure that volunteers who have signed up will be likely to live up to their commitments.
