TCAH’s Youth Empowerment Conferences address vital issues—food justice, mental wellness, financial literacy, and anti-gun violence—resonating with the needs of New York City’s youth. In a city where approximately 30% of children live in poverty and youth violence remains a concern, our conferences provide a crucial platform for young individuals. They actively engage in dialogues to empower them to be agents of change in their communities. The enthusiastic participation of these youths, set against the backdrop of NYC’s challenges, underscores the importance of such initiatives. By focusing on empowerment through education, The Campaign Against Hunger contributes to shaping informed, resilient future leaders for our city.
