Opportunities at the Center for Third World Organizing
The Center for Third World Organizing (CTWO), a racial-justice organization based in Oakland, CA is a grassroots organizing training institute, dedicated to creating a generation of organizers of color. For well over 20 years, CTWO has trained young people, who have moved on to play crucial roles in community and labor organizing and the greater social justice movement. Recognizing that the social ills today must be discussed within the contexts of race, CTWO are dedicated to incorporating the racial justice lens and helping communities help themselves in the face of racism and institutionalized oppression.
CTWO has just announced the dates for its upcoming programs. The announcement below includes our two major programs: Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program (MAAP) 2007 and Community Action Trainings (CAT). This year MAAP, our premier internship/organizer training program for people of color, will run from June 18-August 10, 2007.
This is a great opportunity for young people of color who are committed to social justice. I strongly encourage you to tell your students about this summer opportunity as it is a life changing experience for many. For those interested, information about the application process is posted in the “programs” section of CTWO under “MAAP.” Feel free to circulate and spread the word about CTWO trainings.
A great opportunity for young people of color who are committed to social justice.
