Enlace Chicago’s Leadership Academy is a two-day training that covers topics relating to organizing, leadership and advocacy. All sections are set within the context of Enlace’s work in Little Village. The Academy serves to unify visions and notions of an advocacy identity, the meaning of being a leader and the importance of community organizing.
The curriculum challenges participants to consider their role as change agents and to analyze power dynamics within their community. Participants learn about Enlace’s organizing principles, how to turn a problem into an issue, and how to build campaigns from issues. They also learn about current Enlace campaigns and how they can get involved.
