Quick Start Training is a multi-media and live training that is scheduled for a full day (7 to 8 hours). We schedule Quick Start training as needed to start a new Good News Club. And, we schedule Quick Starts before the start of a school semester. They are required by all new volunteers or recommended as a refresher for returning volunteers.
