…Critically engaging your constituents through action, reflection, and collaboration…

This learning session, facilitated by Joan Minieri in collaboration with RCLA staff, connects social change leaders to practical, diverse and effective methods of popular education and training. The 2008 version of this learning session received positive response and feedback from the participants has been incorporated to make this year’s session even more dynamic.  The RCLA Social Change Leadership Network invites you to learn with us as we train with essential tools for essential organizing.

This session will provide the opportunity for you to:
o Identify training methods that provoke critical thought, participation and partnership;
o Learn with social change leaders and the RCLA team through hands-on experience; and
o Enhance your training design skills-set to help advance the work of your organization.

This training would be most beneficial for community organizers, program directors and coordinators that provide trainings, organizing and education work. 

Please note that participation priority will be given to  those who fit this description and to social change leaders who are attending an RCLA Social Change Leadership Network learning session for the first time.

A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Space is limited!

Your participation in this event is free of charge, with special thanks to the Ford Foundation and the Leadership for a Changing World Research & Documentation Component of RCLA at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.

Session Co- Facilitators: Joan Minieri (SCLN session coordinator), Amparo Hofmann-Pinilla (RCLA deputy director and SCLN director), and AiLun Ku (RCLA programs manager)
