You are invited to a meet & greet mixer in New York City on the evening of Saturday, April 18 during the weekend of our New York Community Action Training (NY CAT) where you can meet staff and friends of CTWO, MAAP alumni, and a few applicants of this year’s MAAP cohort.

Note: There is still time to register for the upcoming NY CAT on Friday, April 17 – Sunday, April 19. The training will be held at Retail Action Project at 140 West 31st Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10001 (between 6th and 7th ave).

Bring friends, colleagues, and spread the word!

We are also launching a “Sponsor a MAAPer” campaign to support the 30th year of our flagship organizer training program, the Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program (MAAP).

MAAP 2015 Fundraising Update: 70% and climbing

With the support of community/social justice host organizations and foundations, CTWO has raised enough money to support over two-thirds of our expected MAAP cohort this year. In order for CTWO to support the full incoming MAAP class of 2015 this summer, we are kicking off a “Sponsor a MAAPer” campaign to raise the remaining 30% of our MAAP budget from grassroots sources — that means people like you!

The Center for Third World Organizing’s Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program (MAAP) is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Established in 1985, MAAP has been the flagship organizer training program for people of color, bringing motivated young activists together from all over the country to teach them the science and art of organizing communities around racial and economic justice issues. MAAP has trained more than 450 organizers, many of whom currently hold leadership positions within social justice organizations around the country.
