Time for a historic investment in young people, and highlighting ‘the impact that youth workers and youth services can have on young people’. This week’s Pro Bono news cartoon.

Sacred Heart College, Brighton South Australia held its Marist ‘Voice of the Courageous Heart’ Liturgy celebration on Friday 30th September. The event was captured in cartoon style on a long panel. A copy was made after the event for the college’s other campus. See last year’s panel here.

250 Ideas for Engaging Children and Young People a forthcoming e-book by Moira Deslandes, Moira Deslandes Consulting. A few of the cartoon illustrations.

Australian Options is a quarterly  journal ‘which aims to challenge the ideas dominating Australian mainstream debate’. Major articles are by ‘activists and progressive thinkers on contemporary political, social and cultural issues’. It is now heading into its 19th year of publication – and of my ‘cartoon commentary’ illustrating many of the articles. Here are some from the last couple of issues.

The focus of the latest issue of New Internationalist is Youth. The cover states:  ‘Youth rising – why apathy is not an option’, and to quote from one article “young people are carrying the can for capitalism’s structural failings’. Those who do read the magazine will know that it presents a global snapshot (and fact-shot) of complex issues.

 

 

This month the cartoon does relate to the theme – as well as using a bit too popular metaphor.
