PORTABLE WORKSHOPS

Customized Training for Housing Co-ops from Your Federation

What is a Portable Workshop?

  • A customized workshop or training session designed for your co-op and delivered to a group of your co-op’s choice,

  • Presented as a 3-hour or a 6-hour workshop depending on the content,

  • Scheduled for a weekday evening or weekend day as requested by the co-op,

  • Tailored specifically to meet the needs of your co-op, and delivered to any number of persons whom your co-op wants to attend.

Not sure which workshop to request? COCHF can provide assistance to discuss your co-op’s training needs, identify what workshop(s) would be appropriate, and help you to identify the topics that should be included.
