Center for Third World Organizing: Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program

The Movement Activist Apprenticeship Program (MAAP), established in 1985, is an 8-week-long intensive training program that provides people of color with the opportunity to develop skills and experience in grassroots organizing. For the past 20 years, MAAP has been the Movement’s flagship organizer-training program for people of color, bringing motivated young activists together from all over the country to teach them the science and art of organizing communities around their most salient issues. MAAP has trained more than 300 organizers, many of whom currently hold positions of responsibility within social-justice organizations around the country.
