The WiLD Core Team was recruited from a broad spectrum of Wisconsin communities and partner organizations to strategize, plan, and support the overall project. This team took responsibility for recruiting teams (versus individuals) to participate in the various community organizing workshops, and served a critical role of connecting diverse organizations and causes. From it’s inception, the goal of the project Core Team was to become a community of practice where people are supported in their learning and motivated to support others within this growing network.
Since 2016, WiLD Core Team’s have collectively recruited, trained, and are now coaching over 1,000 Wisconsin leaders. Many participants have applied their learning by launching campaigns to impact their local communities!
