WHAT IS VISIONARY ORGANIZING & HOW DO I BECOME A VISIONARY ORGANIZER?

Visionary Organizing makes use of systems thinking, emergence thinking, transformative thinking, growth skills, and facilitation skills to experiment with community self-reliance and create sustainable systems that affirm dignity.  Our understanding of Visionary Organizing emphasizes five components:

  • Locating ourselves and communities within history and systems

  • Connecting to and Trusting Our Collective Inner Wisdom

  • Affirming Dignity

  • Experimenting with Community Self-Reliance

  • Imagining futures 

 

To prepare people from all backgrounds to become Visionary Organizers, Visionary Organizing Lab’s programming has a very low bar to entry. All of our facilitators and teachers are trained to meet individuals, groups, organizations, and students where they are so that they can develop the systems thinking, emergence thinking, transformative thinking, growth skills, and facilitation skills needed for Visionary Organizing.

STUDENTs

We design our classes and workshops to be standalone courses that teach valuable skills and lessons.

Our programs for groups and organizations utilize a workshop-training hybrid that we call Systems for Transformative Culture (STCs).

Our programming for students combines elements of workshops and trainings to put students’ personal experiences into context with global history.

If you’re an individual all you have to do is sign up. If you are interested in booking VOL for a group of students or for your group or organization, contact us.
