Testimonials

Garrison Davis (community organizer) “Network Delaware’s training and coaching gave me the platform and opportunity to learn about my style of leadership, and how it can be used to affect change in the community.”

Britney Gulledge (organizer) “The Organizing Change Training program gave me a chance to sit back and study social activism, before starting a project. So many times, I've had an idea that wasn't fully mapped out and I found myself getting overwhelmed and ultimately giving up. Having the tools to plan, organize, strategize made me more successful in creating a program to help the community become more civic-minded. I also had the help and assistance of those around me to bounce ideas off of, which is unbelievably helpful.”
