GCC University 2023

Written by Greater Cleveland Congregations

GCC has seen amazing growth in the number of leaders involved in our issue campaigns. In light of this growth, we will be focusing in 2023 on creating a training foundation to support our new energy so that we are all rooted and grounded in the way that GCC organizes and creates change in our communities. 

GCC University is a three-session training on key concepts and critical components essential to GCC's mission of building power for social justice in Greater Cleveland. All core team members should consider enrolling.

GCC U will include training, role-playing, discussion and case studies on:

  • Building Power: Initiating and developing public relationships through one-to-one relational meetings, developing leadership skills and creating analyses to understand power.
  • Action Team Training: Strategic decision-making and how to cut problems into winnable issues.
  • Core Team and Delegate Development: Creating a culture of organizing in your own institution and understanding the qualities and responsibilities of a GCC leader. 

GCC U will be held on the following consecutive Sundays:

  • February 26, 2023  3-7pm
  • March 5, 2023  3-7pm
  • March 12, 2023  3-7pm

All sessions will be held at Fairmount Presbyterian Church, 2757 Fairmount Boulevard in Cleveland Heights.

Training is free for GCC leaders. Here is a flyer that can be shared with members of your congregation who would be interested along with core team members.

Light dinner will be provided during each training.

Attendance at all three training sessions is required for participation.
