Community Organizing Careers Available to UM students and alums!

DART is now accepting applications for the 2012 DART Organizers Institute -- a paid, four-month field school followed by placement into a fulltime career in grassroots community organizing.

Community organizers in the DART network work to bring people together to solve systemic, local issues of injustice at their root.

DART organizations have won important victories on a broad set of justice issues including:

* Education reform in low-performing public schools
* Job Creation
* Criminal Recidivism
* Predatory Lending
* Affordable Housing
* Wage Theft

The 2012 DART Organizers Institute begins July 9, 2012. Training locations and permanent career placements will include cities in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina and Florida.

The national application deadline is January 16, 2012. To apply or find out more about DART, visit our website: Still have questions? Contact Hannah Wittmer at
