Founded in 2016 by Olivia Chow at Ryerson University, the Institute for Change Leaders (ICL) teaches the skills that progressive organizers and community-based organizations need to win social change.

ICL has trained thousands of people across the country, but we cannot do it alone. We need your financial support. One facilitator works with a small group of six people to ensure intensive, one-on-one training. By becoming a sustaining member of ICL, you will allow us to offer pro-bono trainings and much-needed subsidies so that everyone is able to participate, regardless of their ability to pay.

ICL Members joining in the month of July 2020 can attend the Communication for Social Change three-part workshop series for free, and will enjoy deep discounts on future trainings. Your monthly support also allows us to provide pro-bono workshops and subsidies to make our trainings accessible to everyone who needs them.

Learn more about how students learn to build power through training at the Institute for Change Leaders.

Your support for ICL makes a difference. Thank you.
