Action Now Institute is dedicated holding leadership trainings on issues that impact the lives of working families. These trainings help community members to become experts on the issues plaguing their communities and empower them to develop community-based solutions and policy initiatives that address their concerns.
Our trainings are opportunities for community members to develop their leadership skills and impact the issues that matter most in their lives. We emphasize the effectiveness of relationship building, public speaking, facilitating productive meetings, negotiating with decision makers, and building collective power. Participating in neighborhood activities, such as voter registration and winning city services or police relations, builds skills and enhances the effectiveness of the training. Our leaders are identified as those community members who have the drive to take on a leadership role and connect to the mission of the organization.
We understand that leadership comes in many forms and our goal is to identify the individual aspirations of our community members and cultivate them to their fullest potential. We build leadership capacity through one-on-one interaction and connect those relationships to the collective power of the organization.
