CHEJ offers trainings that use different delivery options such as over the telephone, utilizing conference calls and power point tools, in communities around a particular issue or organizational need and in regional gathering with leaders in a region or across the country that have similar goals or the same issue.
Once a month a lunch time conference call is held for CHEJ group members and $100+ donors. The subject changes each month based upon a survey of group members needs. Several already held include,
- Understanding & Using Social Media–Facebook, Twitter and Blogs
- Successful Fundraising Events and Approaches and grant writing.
- The Pros & Cons of Conducting A Health Study in Your Community
Non-group members are welcome to participate in one complimentary CHEJ training call. To have access to all training calls, please consider joining CHEJ as a community group, or making an individual donation of $100 or more.
Our Leadership skill and organizational trainings are usually done in person in the community or with a group of leaders from a region. Such trainings include: tactical skills used in grassroots campaigns, coalition-building, media outreach, framing your issue and how to create and maintain lasting organizations with strong foundations and setting goals, developing a strategy, choosing tactics, identifying targets, and more.
Additionally, CHEJ provides issue specific training such as What You Need To Know About Testing for Environmental Chemicals, Conducting Community Health Studies, Asphalt Plants, Children’s Special Vulnerabilities, Pro’s & Con’s of Relocating A Community, and more.
There is no charge for these trainings/workshops for group members except the cost of travel and housing for trainers. Group Members requests receive priority over others. To find out more about Group Members see Group member page.
