Building Skills for Change June 2017
Are you passionate about a social issue? Do you want to make change in your community?
During a two-day workshop in June with Olivia Chow (former City Councilor and Member of Parliament), the Institute for Change Leaders will teach you how to:
- Tell your story to motivate others
- Design a strategy that gets the change you want
- Structure your team to avoid burnout and facilitate growth
- Recruit and keep volunteers
- Choose tactics that move decision makers
Olivia Chow is basing the curriculum 2 day workshop from the teachings of Harvard University Professor Marshall Ganz, an adviser to President Obama's 2008 Presidential campaign.
You will learn through lectures and small group activities that will allow you to practice the skills we teach. You will work with an experienced organizer, who will facilitate your group and help you plan your organizing project. You will finish the course ready to tell your story, with a developed organizing statement, and tools to plan your organizing project's strategy and tactics.
Fees (includes breakfast, snacks, coffee, and lunch on BOTH days) will be:
-$180 for waged individuals
-a reduced rate for individuals in need
-$30 for students.
Students needing a subsidy will be asked to describe their organizing project, and will be approved 2 weeks before the training based on need.
This training will take place on Saturday June 17 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, and Sunday June 18 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The training will take place at Ryerson University (350 Victoria Street), with the room number being provided to students who are accepted.
