The Direct Action & Research Training (DART) Center will be hosting an information session on Tuesday, October 22 at 5:30pm in the President's Dining Room in Chapin Hall to discuss careers in the field of community organizing with individuals interested in empowering communities and working for social change.
DART is now accepting applications for the 2014 DART Organizers Institute, the paid training and career placement program for individuals interested in launching a career in community organizing. The DART Center has built coalitions throughout the country that have won important victories on a broad set of justice issues including:
* Education reform in low-performing public schools
* Job Training
* Drugs and Violence
* Criminal Recidivism
* Living Wage
* Neighborhood Revitalization
* Predatory Lending
* Affordable Housing, etc.
The DART Organizers Institute combines a classroom orientation with infield training at a local grassroots organization. Organizers are provided with a cost of living stipend and travel. Graduates of the Organizers Institute are placed into permanent full-time, salaried positions earning $34,000/year + benefits.
