Our mission is to build the power of our movements by training and mentoring a national network of highly-skilled community organisers and campaigners to activate and mobilise communities around shared values to win targeted and strategic campaigns.

The Community Organising Fellowship empowers an annual cohort of 25 community leaders and social change makers to achieve their purpose through a transformational 6-month training program.

COF Fellows have led and won countless campaigns for social and environmental justice, and have facilitated more than 1000 workshops to share community organising and campaigning skills with more than 15,000 staff, volunteers, and community leaders.

Fellows develop a strong network of peers working in a variety of organisations and communities across the continent – laying the groundwork for stronger collaboration. 

Our program draws on training tools and approaches that our core team has developed and honed through our work with hundreds of campaigning organisations and community groups over many years. Our approach to popular education is participatory, experiential, and highly practical, with a strong focus on developing and executing effective campaign strategy. You can find a more comprehensive list of the COF curriculum themes via the Topics page.
