GOAL Youth Workshop Series

The Grassroots Organizing and Leadership (GOAL) Youth Capacity Building Workshop Series was developed in 2007 by youth-led organizations, funders and other partners to provide access to learning opportunities to enhance the work of young people, artists and youth-led groups. Through different strategies and in different spaces, young people are working to make change and to have an impact on communities across the city of Toronto. To take this passion and commitment and channel it into a project, individuals or organizations require training, tools and supports that are not always available to emerging, youth-led groups. These free sessions provide and accessible safe learning space for young people to ask questions, receive support, and access the resources that matter to them.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

Title: Project Management 101

Are you running a community project or are involved with a larger organization? Want to take your project management skills to the next level? Are you interested in learning more about being certified as a project manager and how your current experience can be transferred?

Many of us have become project managers by default as we are thrust into the field through creation of projects for our communities, often with little formal training ourselves. This Project Management 101 workshop will take participants through the basics of Project Management, as referenced by the Project Management Institute.

Participants will be introduced to project management language and concepts as used in the project management field in order to be able to transfer their experience into the larger field of project management. Tools and templates will be provided to support participants in running community projects more efficiently.
