2012 4-H Month of Service - Youth Against Poverty
The "Youth Against Poverty" tri-state project is a movement recognizing a very serious problem involving teens, children and their families in our country. Roughly one out of six elderly Americans are living below the poverty line, 1 in 4 children under the age of 18 in the United States go to bed hungry each night, and half of the global population lives on less than $2 a day. It's the responsibility of our youth to recognize, educate, and take the opportunity to solve this growing problem. By creating this project we are trying to inspire youth to take action against the devastating living conditions of those less fortunate within our communities. The necessity of this action has become more apparent over the past few years. It is for this reason that our main goal is to empower youth to get their clubs and their communities heavily involved. We hope that with this project we can impact communities and bring hope back into the lives of those affected by poverty. Please share your project using the form below.
