DART Center Opportunities for Community Organizing Training

Posted: January 17, 2012

Interested in community organizing?

The Direct Action & Research Training (DART) Center annually conducts a paid training program for those seeking to launch a career in community organizing, then places graduates into permanent salaried positions in the field. It's an excellent opportunity for people to improve the lives of people living in low-moderate income neighborhoods and to get hands on training and experience in community organization, empowerment, and leadership

A community organizer with the DART Center will be on U-M’s campus to present information about careers working for social, economic, and racial justice.

He will discuss:
· Differences between justice and charity
· Power and direct action to address issues of injustice
· Congregation-based coalition building

Tuesday, January 31
Mason Hall 3427
University of Michigan
