Be sure to view our recent information session to hear from the facilitation team and graduates, sharing all about the Community Organising Fellowship.
Are you looking to effectively mobilise and build community engagement in your campaigns? Are you passionately working for environmental protection and social justice and looking to broaden your knowledge and experience in campaign strategy and community organising?
If the answer is yes, we encourage you to apply for this intensive 6 month program that will give you the skills needed to strategise and build people power for social and environmental justice.
The Community Organising Fellowship is deepening campaign strategy and community organising skills and practices to create a national network of highly skilled and effective organisers.
Join a growing network of effective organisers who together are strategising to harness people power in communities across Australia.
