The Summer Institute

is an intensive 8-week training program for youth and student activists from across the country that takes place in the San Francisco Bay Area every summer. The Summer Institute will teach participants essential organizing skills through direct participation, while developing participants’ anti-oppression analyses. The program brings together eight to ten participants who come from diverse personal and political backgrounds, and each will receive a small monthly stipend for their participation. Most importantly, all of this political work and personal development will take place within a challenging and supportive community.
