WILD - Western Institute for Leadership Development
WILD is an intensive year-long organizing and leadership development training program.
WILD (Western Institute for Leadership Development) is a year-long intensive training program for emerging organizers and activists from the Center’s eight state region.
If you’re passionate about organizing, looking to develop your skills and analysis, and rooted in a nonprofit organization working for social justice in the West, WILD could be for you!
The goals of WILD are to:
• Sharpen the organizing skills and political analysis of emerging leaders in a cross-constituency, cross-issue and peer-supported environment.
• Create a shared language for organizers from different backgrounds to talk about organizing, power, and vision to contribute to the progressive movement in the West.
• Develop participants’ proficiency in base-building, member and leader development, and volunteer recruitment and retention.
• Build relationships between organizers and leaders in the region with a commitment to long term action for change.
The 2011-2012 class of 18 emerging community organizers from Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington graduated in October 2012.
