Organizing Praxis Lab Cohort Application

The Organizing Praxis Lab (OPL) is a yearlong training institute sponsored by the Pace Center for Civic Engagement and the University Center for Human Values. Led by former professional community organizers and current Princeton graduate students, OPL is designed for activists with a passion for social justice who desire to learn and hone the skills of organizing. The goal of OPL is to provide leadership development and strategic skillsets for student and community activists to effectively and creatively engage in the work of organizing in the current political moment.

A cohort of 25 undergraduate, graduate, and community partners will be selected to participate in a full-day organizing workshop on Friday, October 13th from 9:30am-8pm as well as engage with organizer practitioners and academics once a month through a speakers’ series. Applicants will be chosen for their commitment to the work of social justice, their diversity, and their ability to fully participate in all OPL activities.

All applications are due by Saturday, September 30th, 2017 and you will be contacted by October 7th regarding your selection.

Applicants should only apply for this cohort if they can commit to attending both the full day Training on Friday, October 13th as well as on a monthly basis for the speakers' series.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Pace Center Program Coordinator, Eliza Blades, via email at or by phone at 609.258.9746.
