CLE Credits and Video Trainings

Communities Rise offers on-demand nonprofit and small business legal training videos on a variety of nonprofit legal topics. All training videos come with electronic copies of handouts provided by the trainers. We offer a discounted rate for Communities Rise volunteers, nonprofit staff and board members and small business owners. Attorneys who want CLE credit do not qualify for the nonprofit rate.
