The INSTITUTE 2014 is an introductory organizing training for young organizers, young member leaders, and youth organizers from across the country.

Participants will come together to build their skills, exchange lessons learned, and strategize to fight and win justice for our communities. We'll develop a solid and systematic orientation to the fundamentals of organizing, including base-building, campaign strategy, and leadership development. Rooted in current youth struggles, the INSTITUTE will provide a unique space for emerging leaders to engage with the challenges and opportunities of the current moment, to advance our organizations and to build a stronger movement.

Participants will receive SOUL's youth organizing curriculum manual, as well as breakfast and lunch for all three days. Training fees range from $175 - $665, and are determined on a sliding scale based on organizational budget. The training fee does not cover lodging expenses. Lodging options in the area can range from $45-90 per night per person. Feel free to contact us if you have questions regarding accommodations.

Space for the Institute is limited, so please apply early! Your application will be considered complete once you have submitted BOTH the organizational application AND the individual application online by January 21, 2014 for Oakland training and February 21, 2014 for New York training. Individual applicants from the same organization only need to submit 1 organizational application.
