Organizing for Action

Post by Brian on Thu Jan 26, 2017 2:43 pm

Organizing for Action is a movement of millions of Americans, coming together to fight for real, lasting change.

Organizing for Action is training the next generation of progressive organizers as they work on important issues across the country. OFA's hands-on fellowship and training programs provide the skills and tools necessary to empower grassroots organizers to make a difference in their communities.

Become an OFA community engagement fellow this spring. Sign up here.

OFA supporters are change-makers. We're bold. We speak out for progress. And we fight for change by getting organized. Right now, we need folks like you—smart, passionate people—more than ever. Whether you're new to organizing or just need to brush up on your skills, the Community Engagement Fellowship equips organizers of all levels with the tools and training to successfully run events that bring communities together around important issues.

For six weeks, fellows learn from experienced organizers and trainers through weekly webinars. Fellows get a deep dive into the theory of change behind community organizing, then work side-by-side with experienced community organizers where they live.

Throughout the program, fellows are challenged to build community relationships, develop fundamental organizing skills, and explore their leadership potential.

What you’ll do as a community engagement fellow:
Attend the fellows onboarding in your area
Attend weekly webinars every Wednesday at 7:30 pm CT from March 8 through April 12
Complete weekly assignments after each webinar
Work with your fellows manager to execute a community engagement event

Application process and timeline:
Application deadline: Monday, February 20, 2017
Acceptance date: Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Program onboarding training: Saturday, March 4, 2017

The OFA Community Engagement Fellowship is unpaid, is primarily for educational and training purposes, and is not expected to lead to an offer of permanent employment.
