Peer Training Program
The purpose of the Peer Training program is to develop the strategic planning and organizational capacities of organizations serving the working poor. Participants in the Peer Training program learn and practice skills to develop effective, mutually accountable teams that will continually improve the capacity of their organizations to serve their constituencies.
The Institute's Peer Training Program is taught over the course of two years, in a series of four two-day workshops. Over those two years, Peer Trainers receive individual follow-up and support from Enlace between workshop sessions to ensure that participants are able to use what they have learnt to strengthen their organizations.
Using dilemmas they are currently facing, Peer Trainers learn five Enlace's Frameworks: Evaluation Star (team evaluation), Strategic Direction (obstacle management), RAP (structured recruitment conversation), Organizing Cycle (short-term planning), and Proactive Plan (proactive strategic planning or new campaign creation).

Social, economic and environmental justice organizations in Mexico and the U.S. that serve low-wage communities are invited to participate in this program free of charge.
