The Tool Training Center is a collaborative educational center focused on bridging critical gaps in the areas of tool use, repair and safety; workforce development; young adult introduction to tools and trades; disaster preparedness; and facility management.
For almost 25 years, the ToolBank has been equipping community nonprofits and volunteers with tools to get projects done, saving them thousands of dollars and time annually. With the creation of the Tool Training Center, the ToolBank is moving forward, equipping them with the knowledge on how to use those tools more effectively, increasing volunteer skills and their impact on our community.
As an educational force for service, the Atlanta Community ToolBank’s Tool Training Center will help our nonprofit community make direct service easier, safer and more abundant across metro Atlanta.
