El Puente New Staff Orientation
The Global Justice Institute (GJI) is a comprehensive training, development, and certification program that engages El Puente staff and Fellows from our local, national, and international networks. The Global Justice Institute has been realized through a rigorous process of formalizing and codifying El Puente’s pedagogy and methodology of nurturing leaders for peace and justice. We have trained our own staff leaders as well as practitioners from across NYC and as far away as France and Northern Ireland. We provide training and support in the areas of arts for social change, cultural organizing, community & youth development, environmental advocacy & climate change, and more. We work with groups from schools, community-based organizations, cultural institutions, and foundations.
