About This Training

The Organizer Bootcamp track is for organizers within their first 18 to 24 months of organizing. Organizers are introduced to the core orientation and role of a community organizer, and they are trained on the fundamental skills of organizing: identifying self-interest, building powerful public relationships, enrolling leaders to take public risks and build followings, ordering relationships with teams and leadership structures, and building and executing three to six month organizing plans. While new organizers receive many skills-based trainings, all of these trainings are rooted in provoking a deeper engagement with the personal leadership that is required to powerfully put these skills to use.

Organizer Bootcamp 1.0

This Bootcamp training covers the role of an organizer, self-interest, one-to-ones, propositions, and building a three month organizing plan that develops leaders, expands their base, and culminates in an organizing “peak” towards strategic campaign objectives such as a town hall, direct action, or large leadership meeting. Organizers leave with deeper clarity about their own self-interest, the decision they have to make to lead, and a three month organizing plan that builds their power and serves as a curriculum for their own development.

Who should go to this training series:

  • New organizers, or those hired within six months to one year
  • Organizers with one to two years of experience who have not gone through a rigorous curriculum
