(Luke 4:18)Multi-Media Youth Contest - A program of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, the Multi-Media Youth Arts Contest is a unique educational experience that provides schools and parishes an opportunity to engage the entire community in learning about: (1) how low-income persons themselves can effectively lead efforts to address the causes of poverty in their communities, and (2) how all Catholics are called to act in support of such efforts as a result of their faith and the values of Catholic social teaching.
CCHD Intern Program - CCHD funds a number of stipend-provided summer, semester, and year-long internships for Catholics in the United States to gain experience working with and on behalf of the poor. These internships occur in around thirty CCHD diocesan offices in the United States, as well as in the CCHD office of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the office of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) in Washington, DC.
Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award - The Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award, an activity of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, recognizes the leadership, energy and diverse skills that young people bring to the anti-poverty work of low-income projects and Catholic parishes. The Cardinal Bernardin New Leadership Award highlights the gifts of young leaders and their Gospel commitment to the poor.PovertyUSA - Website sponsored by Catholic Campaign for Human Development, clearinghouse for information about poverty in the United States.
