Sunrise has a variety of trainings available for people to learn, grow, share skills, and unify the movement. There are lots of opportunities coming up for people of all levels of experience — check them out!

Sunrise 101 Series

Are you excited about Sunrise and want to learn more about the movement? Come to our 3-part online orientation series to learn our strategy, structure, story and principles so that you are fully equipped to take leadership in Sunrise wherever you are. We ask that everyone attend Sunrise 101 if they are actively involved in a hub, holding a role, or just interested! No need if you have attended an in-person orientation training.

**Please understand by registering you are committing to attend all four sessions.

Current sessions:
