OFA supporters are change-makers. We're bold. We speak out for progress. And we fight for change by getting organized. Right now, we need folks like you—smart, passionate people—more than ever. The Fellowship equips new organizers with the tools and training to bring people together to address root challenges facing local communities.

For six weeks, Fellows learn from experienced organizers and trainers through weekly online trainings. Fellows get a deep dive into the theory of change behind community organizing, then, when possible, work side-by-side with experienced community organizers where they live.

Throughout the program, Fellows are challenged to build community relationships, develop fundamental organizing skills, and explore their leadership potential.
