Leadership Training

JONAH is committed to leadership development leaders in the Chippewa Valley. We believe EVERYONE is a potential leader. Leaders build community and inspire others. JONAH exists to deepen relationships within and among faith communities and to empower people in addressing the root causes of poverty and injustice in the greater community.

JONAH offers local and national leadership education opportunities.

  • Our trainers are trained by the Gamaliel Foundation.
  • Using tools from our training is how we make social change.

JONAH 2020-21 Training Schedule

(Due to COVID-19 all our trainings have switched to virtual)

September 10 – How to Tell Your Story 6-7pm via Zoom. Click here to register.
Personal story sharing makes a huge impact on changing how we talk about issues – it makes the problem a human one we can see in ourselves. There are many places in social justice organizing where your personal story can be used – testimony, letters to editor/legistlators, recruitment and education. Practicing it and knowing tips are very helpful. Attend this training with us! Good preparation for our September 24 Candidate forum presenters.

October 1 – How to Talk to People About Voting 7-8pm via Zoom. Click here to register.
This year we need everyone to turn up to vote but there are so many questions about how/when/where/what. Friends and family need to support each other. Come learn what you can say. And learn about ways you can raise money for yourself or your congregation.

Locally we are scheduling virtual trainings starting January 2021.

Wisdom, our Milwaukee parent organization, has a virtual 5-week intro series.

Gamaliel is doing their November 2020 weeklong virtual for only $250. Contact us for more information on either –
