- 3 Concentrations
- Camp will focus on 3 major concentrations of organizing: Action and Campaigning, Alternative Services (building leisure time for political consciousness) and Popular and Political Education. Within the 2 weeks at Camp, participants will dig deeper into each of these concentrations, building knowledge of what they are, how to expand and grow in each, how previous and current social movements exist within each and provide practical tools and techniques.
- Projects & Mini-grants

For these projects, SOF will provide a mini-grant of $2,000 to allow each project to develop and meet completion. Participant groups will have the support of at least 1 Advisory Committee member along with staff to brainstorm, troubleshoot and accomplish their project.
- Homecoming Follow-ups
- Each participant group is expected to sendat least 1 member to Highlander’s Homecoming in September to provide an update on the progress of their SOF projects and their ongoing work.
