This programme of training consists of four one-day courses in Community Organising, including:
• Introduction to Community Organising • Listening Skills for Community Organising • Building Power through Community Organising and • Action for Change through Community Organising
Introduction to Community Organising This is a starting point for anybody who is interested in community organising. It will help you begin to understand what community organising involves and what it looks like in the real world. You will be introduced to the foundations of community organising: listening, power and action.
Community organisers reach out and listen to people, then connect and motivate them to build their collective power.  In this course, you will start to explore how people come together so that they can understand and take action on their concerns to build community and overcome social injustice.
