The Income Inequality project seeks to engage and empower youth to better understand and work against poverty in Vancouver. This project supports youth in facilitating dialogues on poverty, income inequality and wealth distribution with their peers and becoming actively involved in community advocacy work.
As part of this project, youth will lead Poverty & Income Inequality workshops to young people across BC. The Poverty & Income Inequality workshop gives youth the tools to learn and think critically about unequal distribution of wealth and resources, especially in a local/national context. It supports youth to look at some concrete ways to work toward more equitable distribution.
