2018 National Youth Organizing Training Institute
The INSTITUTE 2018, offered on both East & West Coasts, is an introductory organizing training for young organizers, young member leaders, and youth organizers from across the country.
Participants will come together to build their skills, exchange lessons learned, and strategize to fight and win justice for our communities. We’ll develop a solid and systematic orientation to the fundamentals of organizing, including base-building, campaign strategy, and leadership development. Rooted in current youth struggles, the INSTITUTE will provide a unique space for emerging leaders to engage with challenges and opportunities of the current moment, to advance our organizations and to build a stronger movement. Participants will receive SOUL’s youth organizing curriculum manual, as well as breakfast and lunch for all days of training. Training fees range from $200 to $690, and are determined on a sliding scale based on organizational budget. The training fee does not cover participant lodging. Space in the INSTITUTE is limited, so please apply early!
The INSTITUTE 2018 is co-sponsored by:
APEN-Asian Pacific Environmental Network, AROC – Arab Resource and Organizing Center, CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities, California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance, Causa Justa Just Cause, Chinese Progressive Association – SF, DRUM- Desis Rising Up and Moving, Inner City Struggle, Make the Road New York, Philadelphia Student Union, Young Workers United, Youth Together & Youth United for Change.
