Training Calendar

Thank you for your interest in training opportunities through VOC's Outdoor Stewardship Institute (OSI).


Here you will find trainings open to anyone interested in improving or expanding their outdoor stewardship skills, as well as courses for those interested in pursuing volunteer leadership roles with VOC, such as Crew Leader and Crew Chef.

Learn more about OSI here and check back throughout the year as more trainings may be scheduled. You can also sign up for our e-newsletter and follow us on Facebook to be the first to know about new trainings.

Contact Dan Williams at 303-715-1010 ext. 117 with any questions or to discuss scheduling a custom training opportunity for your organization. You may also purchase OSI training materials here.

Please note that training is not necessary to volunteer on a VOC project. Trained leaders will instruct volunteers regarding tools and techniques the day of the project.
