Community organising training
TCC is the UK’s oldest community organising group and we have successfully trained and developed a growing alliance of powerful community leaders in North Wales since 1995. TCC's original founding members were trained in the style of community organising practiced by Barack Obama's mentor, Greg Galluzzo of the Gamaliel Foundation. We build on this tradition, whilst adapting and learning from diverse leaders, as we continue to build community power across generations.
Building relationships and building power is a long-term mission, and the training sessions we offer to members have been developed over the years by TCC’s experienced founding members, organisers and leaders. The training is designed to enhance the real-world learning gained from supporting each-other and taking action over time.
TCC offers 3 main types of training: Learning Sessions, Young Leaders’ Training, Intensive Residential Training.
Our next half-day introduction to community organising is on Saturday 6th August, 10am - 2pm, Ty Calon Deeside.
Our next intensive residential training is on Friday 21st - Saturday 22nd October, at Noddfa Penmaenmawr.
