Kansas City Area School and Youth Groups are Invited to take advantage of powerful opportunity for youth develolpment and leadership
AFSC's Youth Civic Engagement work in Kansas City had a great year and we are looking for groups to collaborate with for programs for 2013-2014. We anticipate that after this year's excellent experiences we will have many more requests from groups wishing to participate next year, so contact us soon.
The Intern will work with AFSC staff and volunteers to support Kansas City AFSC peace campaigns and engage youth from after-school, faith, and high school settings in creative peacemaking and social change (e.g. If I Had A Trillion Dollars youth Film Festival and the If I Could Change The World Spoken Word Project). Activities will focus on: increasing activism; promoting understanding of militarism and economic injustice; exposing ways corporations and the 1% control U.S.
Pearl Webb, Isabella Fassi, and Joshua Smith started interning with AFSC in August 2012, to lead youth civic engagement and social action projects in the Kansas City area. Along with Program Coordinator Ira Harritt, the interns teach high school-aged youth about issues in their communities, injustice in the U.S., and how they can help put an end to the injustice and promote greater peace.
Join us on January 12th to recognize the work of some outstanding and diverse local youth filmmakers as they show us how they would put our trillion-dollar federal discretionary budget to use if they were in charge.
