Poverty No More!
"Ensuring that a child avoids the risk of poverty
is going to take more than a bag of groceries."
FOR ECONOMIC SECURITY
With more than 26% of children in San Bernardino County living below the povery line, this significant socioeconomic indicator calls into question the present need to address a serious and dire issue involving future labor, career and business development opportunities for today's youth.
A county-wide dilemma, valued student populations today must be assisted to avoid becoming tomorrow's vulnerable adult causalities of poverty. Do you agree?
Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino (2016 Nonprofit of the Year) is taking an active role (now) to address the concerns and needs of youth when it comes to poverty alleviation.
Therefore, in Spring 2017 the "Poverty Fighting Network" will engage students from throughout San Bernardino County in a multicultural, academic-tiered, student-focused strategy session to alleviate poverty for and in their generation.
Of which, is intended to ensure that their future as tax-payers, homeowners, businessowners and a viable workforce is economically sustainable to thrive and not merely survive. Are you ready to be a poverty fighting team member for our youth?
