TRAINING AND EVENTS

Upcoming SCARF Training and Events

Our community events are a chance for our community to share culture, cuisine and stories, meet new people, and celebrate with friends.

Please note that some of the events listed below are open to the general public and some events are especially designed to service the SCARF community.

As part of SCARF’s commitment to supporting community members in their search for employment, we also offer SCARF training and courses delivered by external providers, which are listed in the calendar below.
