Continuing Education

About  twice a month V-Learning Community offers a virtual event, one for learning and the other for community time.

In the Learning section uncover interactive materials, articles, podcasts, videos, websites, and more. You can walk through the learning activity without entries from others, participate in an asynchronous activity with entries from others, or use the materials to run your own class, social gathering, team meeting, etc. The Community section offers various vegan games for a community event. Please visit the disclaimer for further information.  A sample training plan and invitation are available, if you choose to have your own live event. 

 

We try to include videos from YouTube that are not highly graphic of animal suffering, in-depth heart surgery, etc., but there are on occasion somewhat graphic images in order to tell the story, and everyone has a different sensitivity level.

Therefore, please use your own discretion. 

If you're starting new and would like more foundational resources, please explore the Online Starter Kit.
