An introduction to the fundamentals of broad based community organizing will encourage those who are ready to help lead.
The organizing curriculum will be based on the philosophy and practices of community organizing as developed by the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), a model being adopted worldwide to achieve progressive social change.
Topics covered in the training include:

◦ The fundamental organizing skills – individual relational meetings, listening sessions, research, negotiations and action.
◦ Strengthening our institutions –engaging people in a culture that is relational, action- oriented and reflective.
