About this grant

The lack of trained organizers is the single greatest unmet need identified in the field of organizing. MI*Voice, a coalition of Michigan-based community organizations affiliated with the Gamaliel Foundation, is working in cooperation with Gamaliel organizations in five states to establish an organizer training program to recruit, train, place, and mentor community organizers to staff organizations in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Upstate New York, and West Virginia. This grant will provide partial support for the new Institute for Organizer Recruitment and Development.
