New Social Justice Resource Available for Youth from CCHD

Ending Poverty in America: A Toolkit for Young Advocates (EPIC) designed specifically for high school-aged youth is now available from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). This is a companion to the Student Action Project designed for children in grades K-8.

It includes six lesson plans and a resource appendix. The curriculum is created to help raise awareness among young people about domestic poverty and to prepare participants to respond in faith by working with others to address issues of poverty in the local community. The lesson plans are presented in a user-friendly format that includes printable handouts.

EPIC is available online at Copies of the CD are available to parishes and schools for free from the diocese upon request. Call Linda Batton at 408-983-0158 or by email at
