Training for Change
For many of us, the desire to make a positive difference in our communities starts early, but we often get stuck on how to do it. That’s where Bread for the World’s Hunger Justice Leaders training comes in.
Two years ago, 75 young activists came to Washington, DC, for intensive training in the nuts and bolts of advocacy work. Then they returned home to lead anti-hunger efforts in their communities -- with marvelous results.
Bread will hold an identical training June 12-15 in Washington, DC, and we’re looking for the best and brightest 20- to 30-year-olds to apply. Participants will learn about community organizing, explore the biblical foundations of faith and justice, visit their members of Congress, and meet other like-minded activists from around the country.
And did we mention this is free? If you’re selected, Bread will cover your expenses.
You can learn more about the program from Vanessa Martinez, a Hunger Justice Leader from Santa Ana, CA, on this short video, or apply directly to the program. And if you know someone who would be a perfect Hunger Justice Leader, send them to www.bread.org/bealeader.
The application deadline is March 12, so don’t wait!
