South Sprog is a weeklong grassroots organizing training program in Brandon, Mississippi. It is an opportunity for youth to learn concrete organizing skills, to build bridges between our campaigns, and to deepen our critical analyses of the issues affecting our communities.
The Southeast is a region of the country that folks from elsewhere often discount as backwards, but we know that this is too simple of a story. In the face of mass incarceration, structural poverty, police brutality, pipeline projects that cut through indigenous communities in the Bayou, and toxic waste sites that sit in poor black communities all the way from Atlanta to the petrochemical corridor in Louisiana, we organize. We collaborate. And we build the communities we want to live into.
Our training seeks to build on this landscape.
We're fundraising to make South Sprog accessible to more folks. You can help send a youth to Sprog by making a contribution today. The more we can raise collectively, the more scholarships we can offer.

The Sierra Club Foundation’s goal is to end our reliance on dirty fossil fuels; reverse the social, economic, and environmental damage caused by global climate change; restore, connect, and protect healthy ecosystems so that wildlife and wilderness can thrive; and successfully transition to a clean, green, renewable energy economy that better serves people and nature. As the fiscal sponsor of the charitable programs of the Sierra Club, we provide resources to it and other nonprofit organizations to support charitable scientific, educational, literary, organizing, advocacy, and legal programs that further The Sierra Club Foundation's mission.
