This summer Real Food Challenge and Student/Farmworker Alliance are offering leadership training for young activists, passionate about creating a just and sustainable food system. The trainings enable students and other young people to make connections, learn from one another, and grow the movement.

During the summer months, Real Food Challenge will provide 3 training sessions geared toward students who are already working, or wish to work, on improving their school’s food purchasing practices.  The training workshops include:  Real Food Midwest in Ames, IA from July 11 – 14; Real Food West Coast in Santa Cruz, CA from August 13 – 17, and Real Food Northwest in Boston, MA from August 20 – 23.  Check here for more information and how to register.

This fall, in Immokalee, Florida from September 10 – 13, Student/Farmworker Alliance will host its 5th annual training weekend, known as Encuentro.   Students and youth from across the country will come together to reflect on the accomplishments of the Campaign for Fair Food and strategize about ways to advance the organization.  Follow this link for more information and how to register.

Take advantage of these opportunities to meet other young people who are working on their campuses to create change while also engaging the staff and organizers of each of these awesome organizations!
