To meet the computing challenges of upcoming experiments, software training efforts play an essential role in imparting best practices and popularizing new technologies. Because many of the taught skills are experiment-independent, the HSF/IRIS-HEP training group coordinates between different training initiatives while building a training center that provides students with various training modules. Both the events and the development of the training material are driven by a community of motivated educators. In this talk, we describe tools and organizational aspects with which we cultivate a strong sense of community ownership, provide recognition for individual contributions, and continue to motivate our members. We also describe new initiatives to foster further growth and increased reach. Among these is the evolution of our Training Center into a dynamic web page that allows us to significantly increase the scope of listed content without sacrificing readability.
