TOLA – The Organizing and Leadership Academy

The Organizing & Leadership Academy (TOLA) is a rigorous “hands-on” training program for individuals interested and motivated to pursue a career in organizing.

TOLA Fellows participate in classroom instruction, do significant reading and reflective writing, and are challenged by experienced organizers, community leaders and elected officials. Most importantly, Fellows work on real organizing projects developing the discipline and skills necessary to become effective organizers.
