Community Organising Fellowships 2020

Here’s a great opportunity for serious activists and campaigners.

SLA is considering full financial support for a successful local applicant.

The Community Organising Fellowship is an exciting initiative that equips community leaders and non-government organisations’ staff with the skills they need to build community power to influence decision-makers.

This Fellowship is for campaigners with political experience who have the capacity to develop and implement campaign strategies. It creates a cohort of highly skilled and effective organisers.

  • Equipping 25 organisers with core skills needed to confidently plan and implement local campaigns on various scales
  • Three experiential residential workshops (2020 dates: March 4 (Wed) to 11 (Wed), June 7 (Sunday) to 12 (Friday) and September 6 (Sunday) to 11 (Friday).
  • A structured curriculum that covers a wide range of topics
  • Mentoring and network support between and after workshops and
  • An extensive collection of training materials shared online and the knowledge to bring trainings to your community.

Applications for the 2020 Fellowship are open from 1 August to 30 September 2019
