DC chapter


You know what they say: every great wizard has to start somewhere. The Harry Potter Alliance’s Wizard Activist School brings you the skills you need to organize your own Dumbledore’s Army. Simply open the skill you want to learn (select “For Chapter Organizers” if you are an HPA Chapter Organizer or officer, and “For Anyone!” if you’re…well, anyone else) and follow along with the lesson.

Each training session can be completed on your own time, and you can spend as much time on it as you wish. At the end of the session your answers will be sent to an HPA Training Facilitator, who will give you personalized feedback and help you refine your answers.
