There is no cost to becoming an SMT Outreach Partner. Funders, organizing networks, and groups with large email lists of progressive groups or unions can become Outreach Partners.
As an Outreach Partner, when SMT offers a training of use to your network, you send out a broad email notification about it. (The email can reference multiple upcoming trainings, but it can only be used for a discount on the next immediate training or two after it was sent.) SMT can only afford to offer discounted rates if Outreach Partners are enabling significantly more people to access SMT trainings.
Anyone affiliated in any way with an Outreach Partner gets a substantial discount on trainings (from10-50% off, depending on the program). They must forward the Outreach Partner’s email about the training to us to get the discount.
If you would like your organization to become an SMT partner, send an email to [email protected] indicating so with your name, title and contact information as well as the size and nature of the network you can share training info with, and we will be in touch.
