June 20, 2005 - The Twin Cities Training Program for Neighborhood Organizers is offering in-depth training for neighborhood volunteers. This in-depth training is designed to help volunteers learn organizing fundamentals and apply them effectively to their community groups. The training combines comprehensive coverage of organizing basics, trainings individually tailored to the individual needs of each volunteer and group, long-term follow-through, and group support from fellow neighborhood volunteers.
The training gives participants the opportunity to get individual direct hands-on help for specific neighborhood projects. Do you need to get more people involved in your organization? Raise funds for a project? Clean up a problem property or close down a drug house? Organize a well-run and energized neighborhood meeting? Do outreach to immigrants in your community? You can get help for your project at this training.
The two-hour training sessions will take place once a week for five weeks. The first session will be held:
Wednesday, July 13, 7:00 P.M.
2728 39th Ave. S. Minneapolis
The first week's topic will be RECRUITING VOLUNTEERS. Other topics will be chosen by the participants and can include such areas as:
- Leadership development
- Issues identification
- Grassroots and foundation fundraising
- Organizing under-represented groups
- Running effective meetings
- Media and communication
These trainings will be given primarily through questions, problems-solving, and direct experience.
