APPLICATION: Facilitating HOW WE WIN workshops: Training for Trainers
**NOTE: Only a limited number will be accepted for this workshop, so we need to use an application process. **NOTE: application deadline has been extended. Please complete the application by January 1, 2020.
If your application is approved, RCNV will send you a link to REGISTER, to be returned by January 15. If capacity is reached, we will add your name to a waiting list.
Facilitating HOW WE WIN Workshops: Training for Trainers is for the FULL DAY, including a MORNING WORKSHOP · 10:00AM— 1:30PM, lunch, and AFTERNOON Session 2:30- 6:00pm
Participants in the morning workshop interested in learning to facilitate the workshop themselves are invited to apply for an afternoon training-for-trainers.
Because space is limited, we will prioritize people who have read HOW WE WIN, have experience in nonviolent direct action campaigning, and have experience facilitating workshops.
Why a Training for Trainers (T4T)?
George has led the HOW WE WIN workshop over a dozen times in the Midwest and both coasts. Interest in the workshop continued to grow, along with interest in the book it’s based on, "How We Win: A Guide to Nonviolent Direct Action Campaigning." RCNV stepped in, offering to sponsor a facilitator training so more people can benefit from the workshop.
Suggested donation for the FULL DAY= $35-70 sliding scale. Payment will be requested after applications have been processed.
MORNING SESSION: 10:00 - 1:30: HOW WE WIN- Strategy Workshop
Led by social movement veteran George Lakey
• What makes nonviolent direct action campaigns relevant now?
• How to build stronger campaigns?
• choosing the right target;
• designing a creative campaign;
