The young people in your church can be passionate advocates for justice. Here are three ways to help them serve those living in poverty.
1. 30 Hour Famine
Every year, hundreds of thousands of students around the world unite to do the 30 Hour Famine. Join them, and your group will learn about hunger, raise funds to help the hungry, and then go hungry yourselves for 30 hours. Through the Famine, teens grow closer to Christ and each other—all while helping to save the lives of hungry kids.
2. Create Your Own
What are you passionate about?
“Create your own” are campaigns and events created and led by youth/students across Canada. No matter who you are or what you’re good at, YOU can change the world! Now is the time to sign up and get involved.
If you want to advocate for a cause, fundraise for children globally or share your message for social justice in a creative way, this is the registration and donation tool where you can do that. Individuals or “Take Action Clusters” can create unique and exciting events. Anything from a local talent show to a town sports game. Almost any idea will fly!
3. Hunger Bible Study Guide
