ServiceVote Ideas: Volunteer for a candidate... or get a candidate to volunteer.

Volunteering with a campaign is a great way to make sure your voice is heard while
getting a first-hand look at the political process. And as candidates campaign all over the community, why not invite them to participate in a service project or visit your group/organization while they're campaigning? By engaging a candidate in a service project or a visit to your program site, you begin to build a relationship with the candidate and can include a discussion around the issues related to the service project.

Make a Hand & Lend a Hand in the Youth Uplift Challenge.

Every young person has dreams of who they will become. Yet, millions of young people around the world face the unstable circumstances of poverty causing many to leave their education behind to find ways to provide for their basic needs­­- pushing their dreams further out of reach. For every hand you make and send in as part of the Youth Uplift Challenge, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $1.90-up to $500,000-to Save the Children's programs empowering youth in Nicaragua and Indonesia to rise into a life they dream for themselves.

Youth Guide to the Global Goals: Activate Youth to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

s
Youth Guide to the Global Goals: Activate Youth to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development were adopted by world leaders one year ago at an historic UN Summit. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities, and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.

An unprecedented number of world leaders recently emphasized the role of youth in shaping a better future in their national statements during the UN General Assembly. 59 countries highlighted the importance of youth development and participation, recognizing young people's contributions to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to international peace and security.

At YSA, we agree that young people will lead the way in achieving the Global Goals. That's why we're proud to introduce the Youth Guide to the Global Goals, a resource that activates youth to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The tip sheets in this resource will help you:
  • Deepen your understanding of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
  • Identify ways that you can use YSA's ASAP Model (Awareness, Service, Advocacy, Philanthropy) to make a difference in your community
  • Conduct a 45-minute lesson to introduce the SDGs to your class, club, or group
