5 Day Training in Partnership with Ambrose's Canadian Poverty Institute
The five-day community organizing training with Ambrose was overall a success. We had 15 participants, from Calgary, Edmonton and the US. We heard from several of the participants how it deeply enriched their understanding of community organizing. More importantly we are already seeing some of the participants step up in their leadership and application of community organizing, both as a part of the broader MACG alliance and in strengthening their own communities. What was reinforced was how important this training is for leaders who want to have a leadership role in community organizing and apply the principles of organizing to their own work. We also learned several lessons that will help us improve how we offer this in the future. Thankyou to Joe Chrastil for being with us and teaching us and to all of the participants and to Ambrose University for hosting us.
