When you enroll, we will send you a copy of Mary’s textbook, Citizen Ninja: Stand Up To Power and you will gain access to our Internet training classroom. The basic class is four 2-hour workshops spread over four weeks.

When your training is completed, you will have confidence and ability to present your thoughts and insights to anyone who needs to hear – in local meetings, neighborhood gatherings, family and friends.

What is Citizen Ninja training?

How to Become a Citizen Ninja™ is a workshop designed for concerned Americans who recognize they have a duty to engage in the civic process but are unsure how to go about it or are fearful of bully tactics being used against them.

Citizen Ninja makes the case for the importance of local civic participation. It educates, motivates, and activates beginner citizen activists and teaches how to participate in politics while providing a step by step guide on what to do.

Most importantly, it addresses the reasons that deter citizens from declaring their ideas, thoughts, and opinions in public.

Some things you will learn

We don’t teach you about which issues to pursue, although many examples will be shared along the way. Rather, we will teach you how to effectively communicate and persuade in any situation. Successful local activism depends on your knowledge of and mastery over, the basics. Some things you will learn include,

  • How to discuss controversial topics with anyone
  • How to permanently sideline your fears
  • How to handle bullies in the public arena
  • How to present facts in order to overcome false narratives
  • How to persuade anyone to your position

As you practice your new Citizen Ninja skills, you will be amazed at the results you can achieve.

What to expect

Your initial enrollment is for a period of 12 months, you will gain access to the entire encrypted and private Local Activist network. You must be logged in to access the network and any Citizen Ninja training material.

After enrollment, it will take a few days for your text book, Citizen Ninja: Stand up to Power, to arrive. Each subsequent lesson will have assignments and homework from this book.

There are four main lessons in the basic Citizen Ninja training, each containing multiple topics. Video segments are associated with each step, along with workbook exercises. As you move through the course, your progress is recorded and you can repeat any portion if necessary.

We will host at least one live webinar each month to present ongoing Citizen Ninja segments and refreshers. If you miss a live presentation, you can listen to the recorded version afterward.

The private and encrypted social network features are only visible to logged-in users. You will be able to connect with other like-minded Citizen Ninjas to share ideas, stories, and strategies. This social interaction is critical to your overall experience and development.
