Community Organising Fellowship

Community Organising Fellowship

The mission of the Community Organising Fellowship is to build the power of our movements by training and mentoring a network of highly-skilled community organisers and campaigners in Australia. Each year 25 participants go on a 6-month learning journey with COF that equips them to activate and mobilise communities around shared values to win targeted and strategic campaigns.
