National Leadership Training

This 7-day residential training presents the concepts and tools an effective leader needs. It affords participants the opportunity to reflect on their present and future roles in the public arena. The method is Socratic. The style is agitational. 3 trainings are offered yearly.


Organizer Retreats

Gamaliel holds several professional organizer retreats for our network staff, including the Organizers of Color table, the Training for Trainers, and various other staff development sessions.


The word comes from South Africa and means "She who walks with lions and carries her own things." This is a women’s leadership training program conducted by and for women. It is designed to present ideas and concepts for becoming effective and powerful leaders, to provide a support network for women, and to help women overcome the internal and external obstacles they face daily.

Local Training

Day or weekend training programs are conducted locally at each of Gamaliel's affiliates. These trainings either introduce new leaders to the basic concepts of organizing or develop established leaders in outreach, civic engagement, power analysis, and recruitment. Contact your local Gamaliel organizer or state director for more details.

Issue Convening

As needed, campaigns will gather key leaders, staff, and partners for planning meetings and strategy sessions. For example, The Civil Rights of Immigrants campaign typically gathers key leaders at least once per year to plan strategy.

Custom Training Sessions

Organizations as varied as the National Urban League, Jobs with Justice, TASH and others have asked Gamaliel to provide custom training sessions for their members. If you are interested in a custom training session for your organization, please send an email to [email protected].
