Community organizing is a process where people who live in proximity to each other come together into an organization that acts in their shared self-interest. Unlike those who promote more-consensual community building, community organizers generally assume that social change necessarily involves conflict and social struggle in order to generate collective power for the powerless. A core goal of community organizing is to generate durable power for an organization representing the community, allowing it to influence key decision-makers on a range of issues over time. Purpose of Community Organizing Man is a social being. He cannot develop unless he is part of society. He must work together with his fellowmen for common interests. The problems of other men are his problems. Together they must search for solutions. Thus, it is the people of the community who must organize themselves. Entry in the Community - gather some basic information about the place such as culture, practice and lifestyle of the people. Integration with
the People - start integrating yourself with the people by living with them, eating their food, doing their chores, and slowly learning their way of life. Core Group Formation - Form a core group consisting of identified potential leaders. This group will continue to meet until each of them accepts the challege to organize the rest of the community. Community Organizing Identifying and Developing Potencial Community Leaders - do not raise the people's expectations unnecessarily. - dress as simply as possible and act as naturally as you can so you can enter
the community almost unnoticed. - by Angelito G. Manalili 2. Integration with the people 3. Community Study or Situation Analysis 4. Identifying and Developing Potential Community Leaders 5.
