Organize BC began in 2013 out of a desire to help people be better organizers across the province. Collaboration, across projects, organizations and regions, has been one of Organize BC's core values since the beginning. We pool the progressive movement’s most valuable resources, our people's skills and knowledge, to deliver ‘engagement organizing’ trainings to people across BC.
In its first two years, Organize BC has developed organizing capacity in hundreds of organizers at dozens of training events, from small evening workshops to full weekend trainings, in communities from Burns Lake to Vancouver to Courtenay. We train organizers from national and provincial scale NGOs, and from small scrappy community groups. We train high school students and retirees, environmentalists and health campaigners, volunteers and professional organizers.
As we grow our programs, we are maintaining a focus on our core values of capacity building and collaboration. We are expanding our pool of trainers, increasing the number of groups we work with, and broadening our geographic reach.
