The training session is conducted by the RRENEW collective. This collective was created in the Summer of 2009 in the spirit of facilitating the placement of volunteers with organizations working for a sustainable Appalachia in the coal dependent region of Southwest Virginia. Several of the founding members of the collective have worked with a variety of organizations striving for a healthier Appalachia, in volunteer and staff capacities, and created RRENEW in order to advance these and other organizations. The Collective operates a volunteer house in Appalachia, Va, where volunteers from near and far can live and work together. RRENEW aims to provide a working model of affordable, ecologically responsible living that serves its community and the healthy transformation of the society around it while engaging in the work of organizing with Appalachian coalfield and Southwest Virginia communities to ensure environmental and social justice.
