Programs On Worker Education and Rights Series, August 2014 – May 2015
P.O.W.E.R. classes offer unionists, activists, and interested community members the opportunity to develop skills, learn history and get informed about critical issues facing working families today. Bringing together members from different unions, allied organizations, and the community creates a dynamic learning environment in which participants share their experience and knowledge.
The classes are jointly taught by Labor Center staff and one or more of our Training Associates or guest instructors.
There are four core classes in the P.O.W.E.R. series:
Special Topics classes are offered each year, focusing on specific skills like strategic research or covering broader subjects like labor law or international labor issues.
Dates and description are on the Calendar of Events page.
A minimum of 10 registrants is required. Registration is through the Continuing Education program of South Seattle Community College.
Because we are a statewide organization, we can bring classes tailored for you to your part of Washington State.
