Concern school clubs are a national student-led initiative that empowers youth to join the global fight to end extreme poverty.
Students that participate in Concern clubs will:
- Engage in global issues through the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of global goals aimed to end extreme poverty by 2030.
- Learn about the work of NGOs, like Concern Worldwide, in addressing poverty with communities on the ground through Concern-created materials and live updates.
- Take collective action to raise awareness and funds for Concern’s global efforts and make a meaningful impact to change the world for the better.
Concern student clubs are launching for the 2017-18 school year and open to all middle and high schools in the United States.
To start a Concern club, you must have at least two student leaders and an educator advisor. Concern will support by providing club guides, including a SDG-based activity guide for the school year.
To participate, educators and/or student leaders must fill out the online registration form.
