Are you passionate about making change in your community?

During this 8-Week online training series with Olivia Chow and the Institute for Change Leaders, you’ll learn how to:

  • Tell your story to motivate others
  • Design a strategy to win the change you want
  • Structure your team to avoid burnout and facilitate growth
  • Recruit and keep volunteers
  • Choose tactics that move decision makers

You will learn through interactive lectures and partnered activities that will allow you to practice the skills we teach online. You will work with experienced organizers, who will facilitate your break-out groups and help practice your skills. You will finish the course ready to tell your story, with a developed organizing statement, and tools to plan your organizing project's strategy and tactics.

Over the past year ICL has worked with dozens of organizations and trained thousands of new activists in the fundamentals of winning social change. We’ve helped a wide spectrum of groups achieve victories big and small, from building a strong tenant association to winning $30-million in funding for affordable housing.

WHEN: Sessions take place weekly every Wednesday from 6:30pm-8:30pm EST from March 4th until April 29th, 2020. (No course on March 18)

HOW: The training will take place online via Zoom. You will need access to a computer, tablet or smartphone with speakers, microphone and webcam to participate. Details on system requirements for your Mac, PC, tablet or smartphone are here.
