THE COLLECTIVE

Membership benefits

Peer coaching and accountability with a community of new wave leaders.
Deep discounts on tech and other services.
Project fiscal sponsorship via our 501c3. 

Ever feel like you would thrive with the support and structure of some regular check-ins with a community of your peers in making positive-change? Looking for a group that understands the struggles of representing systemically oppressed communities while doing change work? Maybe you are approaching burn-out and feel like you need to recommit to your self-care and remind yourself of your own goals and dreams? Do you believe in the power of collaboration to accelerate and amplify good work?
The Collective may be for you.

We connect change-makers all over the nation for coaching and mentorship from our peers in community organizing and social entrepreneurship. We use our collective and community power to access deep discounts on software and services all change-agents need. We share the legitimacy of our organization to help you grow yours. We keep each other accountable and we make shift happen.

Membership to the Collective is by invitation only.

what does it cost?

We know that each member of the Collective is in different stages of wealth building & change making so we have developed this creative approach to allow members to invest in themselves and the collective.

Human capital: become part of the braintrust designing this program and contributing to the growth and development of TSC. An investment of your time and expertise to co-facilitate weekly calls, admin and moderate fb groups, co-create content, and work with TSC Crew more closely, remotely on your own schedule, at least 2 hours a week.

 

Social capital: share the Swell Collective’s membership program or other TSC posts on all your social platforms twice a month. (We can show you how to automate these posts to save you time). Share your community connections by identifying and reaching out to individuals within your own personal or professional network who might enjoy the benefits of membership. Sending them personal email/text/message to introduce them to the Swell Collective membership program. With their permission, adding them to our fb groups and inviting them to like the TSC page.

 

 

Financial capital: The program is estimated to cost $1200 per year, per member. We invite our members to pay what they can financially and make up any difference in human and social capital on the honor system. We trust our members and believe in investing in them and in our Collective together. 

Membership to the Collective is by invitation only.

We maintain a safe community of care for our members by carefully curating the Collective’s membership.
If you are down with our TRANSFORMATIVE SPACE INTENTIONS we want to meet you. Please apply!
