Taking Charge of Change (TCC) is an intensive six-week activist training program for young workers and youth activists (age 30 and under) who want to lead, build and organize for change.

This program will help you:

  • Deepen your understanding of past and present labour and social justice issues using an anti-oppression framework.
  • Develop organizing skills for building a movement.
  • Bonus! Build solidarity with other young activists across the country!

The program runs September 16 to October 23, 2014, with two sessions per week on each Tuesday and Thursday. Applications are open from June 9, 2014 to July 9, 2014.
