APPLY NOW to the FCAC Organizer Support Program
What is the FCAC Organizer Support Program?
The FCAC Organizer Support Program is a new opportunity being offered by the Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition to give extra support and resources to leaders of our campaigns and working groups, whether you’re brand new to this work or whether you have a bit of experience under your belt. This program is meant as a supplement to your work with a working group or campaign to help you deepen your organizing skills, support you in working as a collaborative leader, and provide a community of practice for climate justice.
Who should apply?
This program is designed for individuals who are hoping to step into leadership as a facilitator, coordinator, or even just engaged member for one of FCAC’s working groups or campaigns. Ideally, we will be supporting 1 or 2 organizers per group. This role is right for you if you are excited to learn more about being a collaborative leader, hone your strategy and facilitation skills, expand your knowledge of climate justice issues, and build a community around organizing for climate justice. It is important to be willing & excited to work as a team player and help our movement meet its full potential. We are particularly hoping to encourage people of color & Indigenous people, young, working class, and LGBTQ+ individuals to apply!
What can I expect?
By joining this program, you’ll be joining a cohort of other FCAC facilitators and receive a mix of group trainings and personalized support in your organizing from the fall of 2019 until the spring of 2020. There will be an initial cohort-wide training and then shorter subsequent monthly meetups. In addition, you will receive personal check-in calls to support you through your organizing with your team. These will provide tried and tested organizing, facilitation, and strategy resources, as well as individual support tailored to your situation & needs and a community of support!
This sounds great! How do I apply?
Fill out this application form by October 18! We are also asking that you have two of your team members sponsor your application by quickly filling out this sponsor form as well – because your successful fulfillment of the organizer role requires buy-in from others in the working group, it’s important to communicate with your team about it from the get-go.
