Beyond the Choir is now accepting applications for the 2017 Veterans Organizing Institute (VOI), a 3-day leadership training retreat for military veterans currently involved in progressive social movements — or who are looking to get involved. This is an excellent opportunity to develop the campaign and organizing skills of impactful, progressive veteran leaders across movements. Participants will connect with veterans from across the country working on a wide range of grassroots issues November 2-5.
The VOI will provide training on Veterans and social change, Messaging and narrative strategy, Media and speaking skills, Grassroots organizing skills, and Political analysis.
Applicants will need to have Proof of Service to complete the application form. The Veterans Organizing Institute offers a sliding scale for registration fees, and need-based aid. Funds for travel are limited, so applications are needed before the August 15 deadline.
Space is limited! Not everyone who applies will be selected for this particular retreat, though future local and distance-learning opportunities are in the works.
