CAUSE launching community organizing training for local university students

 

A university education allows students to study social justice issues and grassroots movements.  But students have few opportunities to apply the knowledge they gain in the classroom by working for social justice organizations in the field.  Many students spend years learning about issues like poverty, the environment and human rights, but when they graduate lack the on-the-ground grassroots organizing campaign skills required to apply for jobs in the field, causing some to abandon their passions.

In the summer of 2014, CAUSE will launch a 6-week paid full-time training program, where students will learn about social justice movements and local issues while developing community organizing skills through formal trainings and hands-on campaign experience. 

While similar training programs exist in major metropolitan areas like Los Angeles, San Diego and the Bay Area, opportunities for students in places like the Central Coast are rare.  To train the next generation of movement leaders in our region, the support of our entire community will be critical.  You can help build the local pipeline between passionate young people and sustainable careers in social justice work.
