Free support for nonprofits, at any scale.
We empower organizations to make a difference in their communities by offering specialized support on relational organizing, providing free training and coaching as well as access to advanced technology and funding.
Every organization and community has different needs, which is why we offer a full curriculum of training designed to meet people where they are; from our simple and quick-start Empower Basics Training, to our in-depth “Relational Organizing Training Program” where you will learn what it takes to run a successful relational program, gain hands-on campaign planning, and set up your organization on Empower.
Since we’ve worked with over a thousand of organizations across the country AND run our own relational organizing programs, we’re equipped to provide you with the latest best practices and pass on the lessons we learned. We know what works and we have the research and numbers to back it up.
We offer direct support through our:
1:1 Personalized Coaching
Our Coaching Specialists will work directly with you and your organization to understand your unique needs and provide direct support and solutions as you navigate all aspects of your relational organizing program. Your Coaching Specialist is committed to your success and is there to assist you every step of the way from getting started and creating your organizing strategy to thought partnership and overcoming obstacles along the way.
Customized Training Programs
Do you need a training program that is specific to your issue area, constituency, or team? We’ll consult with you to design, create, and deliver custom training for leaders at any level, from the volunteer to the organizing director or experienced practitioner, to build a sense of community as they learn and strengthen relational organizing techniques in a more tailored space.
Relational Organizing Learning Hub
We’re in this for the greater good–that’s why sharing what we learn and what works, whether it’s through supporting our partners or executing large-scale programs ourselves, is a cornerstone of our mission. We regularly host practitioner webinars to share the outcomes of our programs, results from research we’ve conducted, and the best practices we’ve learned along the way.
“As someone with Relational Organizing experience, I wasn’t sure how much I was going to get out of the trainings. Instead, (Empower Project) asked us to check in on how this can apply to our organization, our beliefs and values, and how to use an organizing model that fits our needs. Having us go step-by-step and take inventory like that was a great approach.”
