Poligon strives to make our trainings accessible for all audiences and understands that not all organizations and community groups have the resources to fully pay for the training. As a result, we offer trainings for those organizations on a sliding scale, based on their annual budget. Please contact us for more information on this policy.

Poligon is only offering virtual trainings during 2020. Please contact us for the rate.
