Ask any community organizer what their job is really about, and they will tell you that more important than protesting, or changing government policies, or even improving local conditions is the work of leadership development.  Organizers work closely with local community members to develop public speaking and advocacy skills, increase confidence, and build relationships, among other capacities. GJN works to build leaders through a variety of community organizing and political trainings that develops people to confront and build political power.

We’re approaching leadership as a practice, not leadership as a position…It’s about accepting responsibility for enabling others to achieve purpose under conditions of uncertainty.

A more “leader-full” community is a stronger community.
