Inspir Activism (here's something to get your teeth into)

Who said we don't care about our youth? Check this out.

SEARCH is initiating an exciting new training program for young activists interested and engaged in left/progressive social change.

Political education will be a key component of the trainings with an emphasis on exploring theoretical perspectives and key vision and values which run across all progressive social movements. Particular skills sharing sessions will also take place, focussed on how to organise campaigns and develop strategy and tactics.

Young activists will have access to a network of experienced and supportive left/progressive activists with possibilities of mentoring, sharing of ideas and solidarity on campaigns. The veteran activists involved have had considerable experience in successful mass movements, which include the: Anti-apartheid campaign, Freedom Rides campaign and Equal Pay for Women campaign.

This is an opportunity to make some new activist friends, be supported while being active and gaining some insights into progressive political strategies for Australia’s future.

We are seeking young individuals (18 – 30)
The training sessions will be held on two consecutive Saturdays
Dates: Saturday13th September 9:15 – 5:00, Saturday 20th September 9:30 – 4:00
Location: 251 Queensberry St, Carlton South
Cost: $20 to cover lunch on both Saturdays

Please email for an application form. We will be in contact with you shortly afterwards in regards to being accepted for the training program.
