About the event

Effective leadership is imperative if transformation is to take place in your organization, community, or congregation. The emphasis throughout this training will be on engagement with the participants along with some learning by doing, including hands-on skill practice sessions and feedback from peers and trainers.

This immersive program will give students the opportunity to look at social issues in their own communities through the lens of organizing and build the skills to make an impact on those issues–both in the future as adults and today as young people. Throughout the week, you will delve deeper into the topics of power, self-interest, one-on-ones, public vs private, power analysis, issues and actions, effective meetings, teams and propositions. The week will also include a field trip to Civic Center Plaza, to tour Memphis City Hall and the Vasco A. Smith Jr. County Administration Building.

Type of Program: Non-Residential Public Target: Rising 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th graders, and 2024 graduates. Dates: Monday, May 27th 2024 - Friday, May 31st, 2024 9am - 3 pm Cost: $100 Scholarships: Available upon request
