Are you passionate about ending poverty? Do you want to further develop your campaigning skills?
Getting involved as a Community Leader is the most rewarding and effective way to build the movement to end poverty. Our teams play a powerful role growing the movement in their local communities - having meaningful conversations with the public, planning media stunts and meeting politicians. As a Community Leader, you will drive hard hitting campaigns that become your own unique stories of friends made, challenges met and powerful impact achieved.
And it all starts with attending a State Summit.
Summits are your one-stop shop on all things campaigning. You will come together with other volunteers to learn the best techniques and strategies from Australia’s leading experts
The election could be called at any time, and the work we do building a critical mass of support couldn’t be more important. We know that politicians won’t act on poverty without a good reason. Through having thousands of one-on-one conversations with people and convincing them to vote for candidates who commit to taking action, we’ll give them a reason - winning key marginal seats.
The State Summits are where we’ll learn the skills to make this goal a reality.
Held in each state from the 11th-13th of March (and Adelaide from the 18th-20th of March), the Summits will bring together like-minded, passionate young people for three days of intensive training - on everything from social media, communications, political engagement, one-on-one conversations, personal narrative, campaign strategy, and a whole lot more…
We have a huge year ahead with the upcoming federal election, and by developing campaign skills we can make a greater impact on the people we speak to and the communities we reach out to. The State Summit will give us the skills to win in 2016.
