CPAG Youth Forum join us for our first meeting of 2014!

Interested in child poverty and want to make a real difference? Got an idea of how to help end child poverty? Want to support Child Poverty Action Group but not sure how?

You may be interested in joining the CPAG’s youth forum. This is a bunch of youth (15-35 years), who develop and run projects which will help raise awareness of child poverty in Aotearoa and eradicate it!

This could mean anything from fundraising to speaking in schools, or better yet, developing your own idea and implementing it with the support of one of New Zealand’s leading advocates against child poverty!

How will it work?

On Tuesday 25 March at 6pm  anyone who is interested is invited to come along to Cityside Church, Newton Auckland.  There we will meet CPAG board members who will tell us about CPAG and their strategy for this election year.  We will then discuss what things we (that’s us youth!) can do to support them. Bring your creativity and critical thinking!

This year is election year and poverty is a hot topic! What will you do to ensure more New Zealanders and politicians make decisions which end child poverty?

RSVP here!

There'll also be food and drink afterwards  so please let us know if you're coming.

We look forward to seeing you there
