Transitioning AYCC's Organising Model 2021

Over the next 3 years we want to build a movement of young people that is bigger, stronger, more diverse and more decentralised than ever before! To do this we need to shift the way we organise. The aim of this transition is to create new opportunites to bring people into our movement, to build distributed leadership & create more opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and to give volunteers more autonomy to lead AYCC's campaigns in your local area.

Below are a list of events for volunteer leaders to come together and discuss how we're going to support volunteers and transition our organising model in 2021. This will be an iterative process and will involve: trialling new support structures, having regular reflection/feedback spaces, and adapting our support structures based on our collective learnings.

The first iteration of this work will run from January to March 2021. The second iteration of this work will run from April to June 2021.


Phase 3: Deep dive into AYCC's Distributed Model of Organising

The discussions during Phase 3 will be based off a 'draft 0' Feb 2021 Distributed Organising Proposal which will be emailed to you when you RSVP to any of the calls below. This proposal will be used as a jump off point for us to have discussions about AYCC's volunteer support structures. The discussions will be designed so that volunteers can come to 1 or all 5 calls - it's up to you how much you'd like to feed in :)
