The Academy complements the Community Organizer Apprentice Program (a 19-month, on-the-job training program.) that began in June 2017.
The Academy will include an initial cohort of about 20 participants who (along with KFTC leaders, staff and allies) will engage in a six-month training program beginning in January 2018 and concluding in June 2018. The training cohort will consist of meeting every third Saturday of the month for a training scheduled from 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. from January through June 2018. The cohort will also ask that participants read, listen, watch and engage with various resources throughout their training, as well as participate in discussions and reflections with your fellow cohort members on video chats and in an online platform throughout the six-month period.
As members of the pilot cohort, participants will be asked to help KFTC evaluate the Organizing Academy and shape future programs. Therefore we are looking for people who believe in organizing as a primary strategy, are committed to the future of KFTC and look to apply their skills learned in your community, KFTC chapter or your grassroots organization.
Deadline for Application: October 16Participants will be invited to participate in the pilot cohort by December 1
