Leadership Development

COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19, our Community Organizing work has cancelled all in-person meetings and events. We are doing many events virtually and you can find out more by emailing communityorganizing@tndc.org. We look forward to seeing you when we can reopen!


Leadership Development

The overall goal of our educational programs is to teach people to effectively work on issues that are important to them, their families, and their community and then help them apply the skills they’ve learned to actual campaigns and issue-based efforts. Our programs are designed to support the grassroots leadership of local residents by providing them a space for personal development, and tools for political analysis, and critical thinking.  CO wants to work with anyone who’s interested in improving the Tenderloin or learning more about their community.

Our classes empower community members to become effective leaders in their neighborhoods through a popular education curriculum covering personal narratives, campaign development, and policy areas directly impacting residents’ lives.
