Deb Katz, Executive Director, Citizens Awareness Network
Citizens Awareness Networkâ€™s work with Action Circles was essential for us to move forward with a clear vision and effective goals. With Action Circlesâ€™ help we transformed our approach to organizing and created the necessary paradigm shift to accomplish our goals and protect our community.

The Actions Circles grassroots organizing training guided me through purposeful principles, goals, and ideas for action that are totally relevant for my organizationâ€™s advocacy campaign. The framework of the training is inclusive and intentionalâ€”all are welcome and all learn what kinds of power we have and how we can share it with others. I left the training energized and ready to hit the ground running on how to build our movement!
Kathleen Swanson, Development Director, Common Good VT
Common Good Vermont – Vermont’s nonprofit capacity support organization – was at a crossroads a few years ago. The Action Circles team came in and trained us in their model, which helped us to focus on what was important and think more strategically to better meet our mission, which is to help Vermont’s nonprofits be more effective and make our state a better place to live. Amy and her staff are fantastic.

A few years ago I took the Action Circles Organizing workshop. Since that time, I continue to use what I learned to increase and deepen meaningful participation by our members. One of the most important skills I learned was the value of reaching out to people on the periphery of my organization and looking for opportunities to engage them in a more meaningful way. As I still use the tools I learned from the 6 hour workshop, I can only imagine how valuable a 3 day, small group immersion with Amy and her professional, accommodating staff will be.
