Meet the next generation of organizers

Organizing is not just about teaching people skills—it's about training folks to go out into their communities to empower others. Some of the most passionate new organizers are meeting up this month to hone their skills at the OFA Organizer Academy trainings—and they are having a great time doing it.

OFA's Organizer Academy is designed to teach techniques and share valuable hands-on experience to empower the organizers of tomorrow to take the next step in their communities. Supporters are learning to hold meaningful one-on-one conversations, phone bank, enter data, host events, and so much more.

Take a minute and meet the next generation of organizers—we think you'll be inspired.

Detroit, Michigan—Folks in Detroit broke the ice and kicked off the training by getting to know each other—organizer style.

Fargo, North Dakota—The #OFAcademy attendees put their new skills to the test and started making phone calls to recruit for an upcoming Stand with Women event.

Akron, Ohio—It wouldn't be an #OFAction training without a few breakout sessions. Trainees in Ohio got some real live practice in making the hard ask. These savvy new organizers will make sure you say sign up for a shift and bring a case of water—trust us.

Austin, Texas—#OFAFellows who have been working hard all winter to build up their skills had a chance to train the next generation and led the OFA Academy in Austin.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania—The #OFAcademy attendees shared their story of self and are ready to go out into their communities.

These are just a few of the inspiring moments from the weekend. Click through this slideshow to see a few more.
