Supervising Organizers Workshop

So you know how to organize, but how do you get others to be good organizers?  Midwest Academy’s Supervising Organizers Workshop deals with the specific challenges of guiding social change organizers to do their best work.  It’s a mix of management skills (developing work plans, building accountable relationships, teaching on-the-job skills) with considerations specific to the organizing work.  How do you develop a common understanding of what’s expected in a rapidly shifting campaign?  How do you build organizers not just for now, but for the long haul?  Explore all this and more in this 3-day workshop.

“Now I realize I can use the Strategy Chart to develop the strategic thinking of newer staff and leaders.”

“I’m going to be very thoughtful about creating experiences for people to get the skills they need.”

A sample agenda is available.

Refund/Credit Policies
In the event you cannot make the training you registered for
, please reach out to us as soon as you know. This helps us accurately plan and keeps our waitlist from growing unnecessarily.
Our policies differ based on in-person or virtual trainings:
Refund/Credit policy for virtual trainings:
This policy reflects the reality of recruiting new participants from the waitlist on short notice.
  • If you let us know more than 4 weeks from the first day of the training, you will receive a full refund or credit for future training.
  • If you let us know between 2-4 weeks from the first day of the training, you will receive a 75% refund or credit for a future training.
  • If you let us know between 1-2 weeks from the first day of the training, you will receive a 50% refund or credit for a future training.
  • Less than 1 week notice -or- not showing up on the first day of the training, no refunds are available, and credits are at the discretion of administration.
Refund/Credit policy for in-person trainings:
This policy reflects our belief that it will be increasingly difficult to recruit new participants the closer we get to the start of the training, especially given health concerns and travel costs.
  • If you let us know more than 6 weeks from the first day of the training, you will receive a full refund or credit for future training.
  • If you let us know between 4-6 weeks from the first day of the training, you will receive a 50% refund or credit for future training.
  • If you let us know less than 4 weeks from the first day of the training, you will not receive a refund or credit for future training.
