Are you interested in a career in the labor movement or progressive organizing?

Do you think you have what it takes to support worker leaders taking bold action to win economic and social justice at their workplaces and beyond?

The 32BJ New Organizer Training Program offers a unique opportunity for aspiring organizers to learn the basics of workers organizing and about how the labor movement works. The program offers hands-on organizing experience through campaign field work, moving workers to take action, winning change as well as combined regular labor history and skill building workshops.

Participants in the program will build skills in: conversations with low-wage workers at home and in the workplace about the power of a union; identifying workplace leaders; mapping a workplace; mobilizing workers to take action; supporting and planning protests, demonstrations, and actions. The new organizer training program will put your skills into action in our following locations: New York, New Jersey, Boston, Connecticut, Orlando, Miami, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Charlotte and the Washington DC area. Strengthen and develop your skills for campaigns of all kinds!
