Community Action Training

Community Action Training builds the capacity of community members to become effective change-makers through individual coaching and group workshops. It brings together community members to learn how to take action on issues of poverty and other social, political, environmental and economic injustices.  

Learn to navigate the system and to advocate for yourself and others. This 12 week workshop will provide you with the tools to build confidence and community. Topics covered include:

  • Community Resources
  • Advocacy for Everyone
  • Introduction to Collaborative Communication
  • Critical Thinking
  • Govt 101
  • Self-care

This group is open to all but gives priority to low income community members. Participants will receive a gift card for groceries for each session they attend. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for open positions as Peer Advocates in the Community Advocacy Office.
