“Building Power for Change” Field Organizer & Facilitator Training

You can help build our community’s power to make change! UnifiEd is here to support you to affect the change you want to see in public education, and our training workshops give you the skills and tools to organize within your network and neighborhood. The series is named “Building Power for Change” because you’ll gain leadership skills to help our community hold elected officials accountable to ensuring a brilliant future for every student. Through this training, you’ll have the opportunity to build relationships with a diverse group of community members and unite toward a shared vision for excellence in public education. Choose a training focus based on how you want to be involved: organize or facilitate. (Or both!)
