Do you want to develop the skills to make things happen, to be a leader and change the world? Then register for QM’s exclusive Leadership and Community Organising training programme!
Barack Obama’s experience as a community organiser in Chicago gave him the skills and experience that proved pivotal to his successful election campaign in 2008. In the UK, London Citizens have used community organising to bring together diverse communities, pioneer the Living Wage and deliver affordable housing in Mile End.
This year, Queen Mary and London Citizens are offering students a fantastic opportunity to learn the skills and techniques behind these successful campaigns. The Leadership and Community Organising Training is FREE, open to all students and runs throughout the academic year. It will involve six hours of learning and the opportunity to practise the skills learned in class.
Participants will benefit from training with leading Community Organisers at London Citizens with the option of doing a project after the training.
The course is open to a limited number of students so please register now. We are now recruiting a cohort to train in January and February 2013.
