YNDC Participates in Gamaliel Weeklong National Leadership Training in Villa Maria, PA, sponsored by ACTION

Friday, March 8, 2019

Members of YNDC's team, leaders of multiple neighborhood organizations, and faith leaders from ACTION participated in a seven-day, intensive training on leadership and neighborhood organizing hosted by Gamaliel, a nationally-renowned community organizing network.

Team members worked to build clarity around their self-interest, learned how to conduct effective one-to-one and public meetings, and learned how build power by organizing both people and resources to achieve community objectives. 
The training was sponsored by ACTION, a coalition of congregations and community organizations, of which YNDC is a member, working to address social justice issues affecting our neighborhoods.
