Migrant Leadership Academy- seeking NEW RECRUITS!
After a successful pilot in 2018 we are happy to announce the Migrant Leadership Academy 2020 is running again!
It will kick off in mid-July and run for 12 weeks (weekly sessions).
Participants will learn the fundamentals of community organising to build powerful teams in their communities and deliver effective campaigns on the issues that matter most.
Are you a migrant leader?
We’re looking for people of a migrant and refugee background committed to social justice and equality and are passionate about their community. Ideally, you should be a member of an existing social justice/migrant community group. If you have the drive and determination to change things for the better for your community then we want YOU!
The core modules cover:
- Community Organising: Theory of Change
- Building Grassroot Power and Influence
- Telling Stories to Move Others to Action
- Developing Relational Leadership Networks
- How to Build Effective Teams
- Strategy and Tactics for Building Great Campaigns
- Self and Collective Care for Transformational Justice
- Political Mobilisation
- Digital Campaigning
Please note due to Covid-19 and the latest public health advice, *all the training will be online*. Each module is split into sessions that will be between 1.5 to 2.5 hours in length. Between each module we will use Act Build Change’s online training programme to complement live learning sessions. The weekly sessions will be a mixture of talks, groups discussions, virtual post it note activities, games, pair work and private reflections. Each participant will receive tailored 1-to-1 support in designing and rolling our their own justice campaign/community initiative.
We are delighted to partner with Act Build Change to deliver the training. Act Build Change is a learning community for people seeking to spark positive change.
**BONUS As well as forging networks here in Ireland, participants in the Migrant Leadership Academy will also have the opportunity to link in with a European network of migrant community leaders through the Democracy Summit.
