More of the narrative, is what I was told; my contention being that there is work to do; and I’ve already explained the narrative.
Which is available through my chapbook of poetry & music.
That is the best I can do at present.
The work is wealth redistribution through leveraging market features such as the desire for anonymity, transparency and data.
Based in the latter, we build a small reservoir of data and use it both for a learning pool in which others can learn. As well as the start of a larger communal effort.
First Teach Others
It begins by teaching each other the basics of computer coding; not that everyone will use these tools in their next job.
But that they have a familiarity with these tools, and how the systems work; while deep diving is available for others, as well.
One’s perceived-market value can increase considerably through knowing the skills we teach regardless.
Second Pay & Get Paid
Normally one would expect the teacher to get paid more than the student; but that is not the case in the SF Trainer Course situation.
In this manner we do not need to be a top-heavy organization, trying to sustain overhead until sustainable inertia is obtained.
This frees up considerable expense that can be used to assure student compensation is sufficient, and able to grow as they become trainers themselves.
Replicate the Model
I train trainers, that’s it.
I train small cohorts who go on to train larger community classes, and get amazing jobs and be their complete amazing selves!
As the number of students we collectively serve is increases, so will our capacity to expand the topics for which we provide training.
Another step is to complete an organizational application, able to serve the needs of communities doing policy work.
In this manner, as we expand, so do we wish to expand the opportunities of our students, trainers and communities.
The reason for transparency is to gain commensurate trust in the information our users do provide; which we will guard jealously, I admit.
Growth can be focused from the bottom up, as we train in each of the tasks we pursue. From finances to development, training to administrative coordination, we are redefining how to a non-profit can be sustain-ably run.
