Engagement organizing (EO) involves building your organization’s people power by identifying and recruiting people who share your organization’s interests, cultivating relationships with them, and supporting them in specific ways to volunteer, donate and advocate for your cause.
It allows organizations to scale up their efforts with the help of digital technologies and a shift in management roles to support ever greater levels of volunteer participation and leadership. The result is resilient, robust and effective organizations that operate at a level much higher than those who follow conventional organizing approaches.
Through EO 101, participants will learn the basics of engagement organizing, how to help your organization to become a people-powered organization and how to apply EO in your day-to-day work life while advancing the mission of your organization.
