Research demonstrates that community organizing and social work share historical commonalities which have influenced the development of social work as a profession. The purpose of this thesis was to create a Community Organizing Summit Curriculum to increase the knowledge, skills and interest of undergraduate social work students in community organizing and its application to social work with marginalized communities. The curriculum is a one day training focusing on the historical context of social work and community organizing, models of community organization in macro social work, community organizing models and current local trends in organizing. This curriculum consists of a session by session manual to help guide social work educators working with undergraduate social work students using a combination of lecture presentations, interactive group activities and a panel discussion featuring local community organizers.
