In addition to the experiential training our members receive through various placements and projects, the Junior League of Denver features a Training Council that provides a variety of learning and enrichment opportunities for our members, serving the very heart of our Mission. The council provides training across a huge spectrum of topics, and includes one-time trainings as well as ongoing learning opportunities.
