Youth Rise Up

This article is imported from our 2017 Stop Poverty Campaign web site.

“You are the youth and you are standing up with something to say to the world. You aren’t just any young people either, you are a young people who want to learn in order to be able to speak and to understand – young people who want to cultivate themselves.” – Joseph Wresinski

Since its inception, ATD Fourth World has worked so that young people in poverty can be involved in movements to change the world. That work continues today for young people from all backgrounds.
