Intensive Leadership Development Programs
350VT seeks to support the development of leaders committed to climate justice. Three times a year, we offer a training called Building Ground to support new leaders in developing their understandings of the core aspects of climate justice and in exploring their own styles of change-making and leadership. For people who have already completed a Building Ground training, or have demonstrated comparable experience or commitment, we also partner with Training For Change to offer a Training For Social Action Trainers or similar skill deepening program each year.
Public Workshops & Training Programs
Throughout the year, 350VT also holds open public workshops focused on a variety of different topics: teaching skills from digital organizing to working with complicated group dynamics. You can learn about upcoming workshops by checking our calendar, or by signing up to get our e-blast newsletter updates which contain information about upcoming workshops as well as other events and volunteer opportunities. If you’re interested in a particular workshop, but don’t see it on the calendar, see below for how to host
