Thank you for applying to the Ohio FLAME (For Liberation And Movement Escalation) Program! The 🔥FLAME program🔥 is a collaboration between the Ohio Student Association, the Foundation for Civic Leadership, and the Ayni Training Institute. The purpose of the program is to provide financial support and strategic guidance to student leaders in Ohio, and bring together a network of student activists for a mass training on April 24th. Our goal is to provide you with training and strategic support from national and statewide social movement leaders to help you spark a social movement.

Want to start a creative and innovative movement for social change? Here's how 🔥FLAME🔥 can help:

1. Mass training on 'How to Spark a Social Movement' on April 24th.
2. Strategic support workshops on community organizing skills taught by experienced activists.
3. Mini-grants (up to $1,000) to help get your movement off the ground.
4. The opportunity to come together with other student organizers to collaborate and share ideas.  

Applicants will be notified of the acceptance of their grant award as noted in the schedule below. Applicants are welcome to contact the Foundation for Civic Leadership to determine the status of their grant if they have not been notified promptly by emailing us at kodonnell@college.harvard.edu.
