Learn to Organize for Your Community

Chicago is the home of Saul Alinsky—style community organizing. Now you can get that kind of training and turn around and move your neighborhood and community forward. The Community Renewal Society’s flagship three-day training identifies key organizing principles, how values influence those principles and how you can become an effective organizer and leader.

Civic Action Network staff and guest trainers lead participants through challenging sessions focused on organizing skills and faith-based principles. This training will challenge your presumptions, confront your priorities and move you to reflect on who you are capable of being as a community builder.

The training includes sessions on:

  • History and Principles of Organizing
  • Values
  • One-on-ones
  • Agitation
  • Cutting Issues
  • Taking Action
  • Power Analysis
  • Base Building and Communication
