Working with Organize BC brought new ideas, practices and methods to our member organizing and training programs. The extensive experience of the facilitators, detailed case studies and strong foundational research completely resonated with the workshop participants. We've seen incredible levels of member activism following the trainings and it has a direct connection to the skills they learned from Organize BC.

Organize BC has enabled Dogwood Initiative to grow from a few small teams on Vancouver Island to over 60 grassroots teams across British Columbia. Without the support from Organize BC, Dogwood’s organizing network would be years behind where they are now.

I am gobsmacked by the program. It pulls people right into a communal, positive intention and then seamlessly provides the scaffolding necessary for learning to lead by example and lead by empowering others.

Organize BC's curriculum and trainers are top notch. After going to a Core Training, we used their lesson plans and handbook to help develop a workshop at the Jack Layton Leadership School. My team has now trained hundreds of change leaders in Ontario. Their coaching and support has been invaluable. If you haven’t been to an Organize BC training yet, go!

Organize BC’s workshop facilitation was just what our organizers needed. The trainers provided a high-quality 3-day retreat, integrating training, coaching and community-building tailored to Alaska’s unique context. Since the workshop, they have been committed to providing ongoing support to ensure our organizer’s goals are met, and that the benefits of the workshop aren’t lost.

As a group in constant flux, UBCC350 has found stability in the lessons and practices learned from Organize BC trainings. Organize BC has been instrumental in helping us build capacity on UBC's campus to create a movement of engaged students demanding climate action from our school and government.
