GCC has seen amazing growth in the number of leaders involved in our issue campaigns. In light of this growth, we will be focusing in 2023 on creating a training foundation to support our new energy so that we are all rooted and grounded in the way that GCC organizes and creates change in our communities.
GCC University is a three-session training on key concepts and critical components essential to GCC’s mission of building power for social justice in Greater Cleveland. All core team members should consider enrolling.
GCC U will include training, role-playing, discussion and case studies on:
- Building Power: Initiating and developing public relationships through one-to-one relational meetings, developing leadership skills and creating analyses to understand power.
- Action Team Training: Strategic decision-making and how to cut problems into winnable issues.
- Core Team and Delegate Development: Creating a culture of organizing in your own institution and understanding the qualities and responsibilities of a GCC leader.
GCC U will be held on the following consecutive Sundays:
February 26, 2023 3-7pm
March 5, 2023 3-7pm
March 12, 2023 3-7pm
All sessions will be held at Fairmount Presbyterian Church, 2757 Fairmount Boulevard in Cleveland Heights.
