Here we learn the basics of community organising to build powerful teams, develop leadership and win on the issues that matter to us.

History shows us that together we are more capable of changing the world than one person or institution will ever be. Through community organising, we use our collective resources to develop leadership in our local area to build people power and take action on what matters. Together we can build our relationships to grow movements capable of transforming our world.
