Sharpen your community organizing skills.

At Citizens Committee, we don’t just give out grants. We host free community workshops on great ways to mobilize your neighbors, raise funds (beyond our own grants), navigate city government, and more. We share stories, tools, and tips custom-tailored to meet the needs of grassroots groups—and listen to your experiences.

Our workshops are designed with resident-led groups in mind; each session draws from the ideas and experiences that you bring.

Upcoming workshops are listed with their date; workshops without dates have passed. Check back for the next time we offer these trainings!
