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.

In the event you can not make the session you signed up for: We honor requests to transfer registration to a future session! Just reach out to us as soon as you know you have a conflict. This helps us accurately plan and keeps our waitlist from growing unnecessarily.
  • More than 4 weeks prior to the start date of the session: we will happily transfer your registration to a future session, no extra fees! If you prefer to cancel instead, we will refund the total amount minus $100 for administrative fees.
  • Less than 4 weeks prior to the start date of the session: we will still transfer your registration, though will need to add a transfer fee of $50. Cancellations will result in a 50% refund.

If you do NOT show up and have given no notice, we can not give a refund.
