. Education reform in low-performing public schools . Job Training . Drugs and Violence . Affordable Housing . Criminal Recidivism . Neighborhood Revitalization, etc.

. Identifying and training local leaders . Strategic planning and issue cutting . Relationship and community building . Direct Action on community issues . Fundraising
This is a paid training program designed to promote successful graduates into permanent salaried positions making up to $35,000/year in starting salaries, plus benefits.

We continue to train the best of those working to build the power of low-moderate income neighborhoods to win victories on important issues in their community.
