***CHECK BACK FOR A NEW SESSION IN FALL 2017!***
Welcome to Taking Charge of Change Winter 2016 Application!
Program dates: Every Tuesday from February 23rd – April 12th, 2016. Sessions run from 7pm – 9pm EST. (Please note that you may need to adjust this to your time zone. Find a time zone converter here.)
On behalf of the Canadian Labour Congress, we’d like to welcome you and to thank you for your interest in our program, Taking Charge of Change (TCC).
Our hope is to create an intimate and interactive learning environment where you as a young worker can engage with digital content and webinars, to explore critical subjects with a critical eye – and to connect with peers across Canada to collectively build our capacity to organize for change.
TCC is an intensive program made up of sessions held live online. Sessions explore contemporary issues grounded in a context of peoples’ histories, struggles and politics. We round out the sessions by building skills and sharing strategies and tactics for organizing.
ICYMI, here again are the program goals. We want TCC to help you:
- Build leadership skills to engage and mobilize young workers.
- Build knowledge about the issues affecting young workers in the union, workplace and community.
- Deepen your understanding of past and present labour and social justice issues using an anti-oppression framework.
- Develop organizing skills for building a movement.
- Build solidarity with other young activists across the country.
Subjects & content
Our subjects range from anti-oppression to labour history to inter-generational communication and more.
Where flipping out is a good thing
One of the key things we are working with here is the idea of “flipping” the virtual classroom. This means that we encourage you to, as much as possible, engage with session content in advance of the actual webinar so that you can bring your full, informed self to the discussion. We have asked our workshop resource people to help us identify essential content that bring the subject matter to life. Please do what you can to engage with this content before the webinar scheduled for the topic!
Applications for the Winter 2015 sessions of TCC will be open from January 8 to 24, 2016. Successful applicants will be informed within ten days of applications closing.
Due to the digital nature of this course, young workers from all regions across Canada are welcome to apply. Please note that this course session is offered in English.
Every Tuesday from February 23rd – April 12th, 2016. Sessions run from 7pm – 9pm EST. (Please note that you may need to adjust this to your time zone. Find a time zone converter here.)
