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 2.5-day 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.
Over the past 3-years, WiLD Core Team’s have collectively recruited, trained and are now coaching over 1,000 Wisconsin leaders. Many participants have returned to their communities to apply their learning through launching local campaigns!
