The Movement School is a program run by Cooperation Northfield and the Overstory Alliance for 9 weeks in the summer of 2021. The program seeks to train young people to be effective change makers, and will begin with systems-based synthesis and political education, ultimately helping participants gain confidence through plugging into real-world organizing opportunities. The movement school will see participants moving between cooperative housing in Northfield and the front lines of the Line 3 fight in northern Minnesota. Housing, food, and transportation needs for movement school participants will be covered for the duration of the program.
By the end of the program, we hope that you will be prepared to jump directly into whatever work is calling to you and feel confident in your ability to to do it effectively. We also hope to provide you with the tools to make organizing your life around your central mission possible.
