Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a leadership program for teens who want to change the world, and we are ready to take our work to the next level.
Imagine a future where thousands of youth are running school clubs, interning at nonprofits, organizing community clean ups, tackling bullying at their school, and doing community outreach -- because they went to YEA Camp. This is a world where real change is possible. We are reaching out today for your help to make our vision a reality.
We’ve already grown by leaps and bounds, starting with 15 campers in one state in 2009, to over 85 campers in three states in 2012. We are working to expand our programs during the summer and by growing our online programs to reach many more youth to support them in taking action for a better world.
If you know YEA Camp, you know that few organizations have done as much as we have on a shoe-string budget. We are embarking on a campaign to raise $50,000 by February 15th. This may sound ambitious, and it is! But we know we have an amazing bunch of supporters who believe in what we are doing. These funds would take our organization to the next level, allowing us to dramatically scale up our programs and reach many, many more youth than we can currently reach.
Your donation, and your invitation to share this page with others, will be a huge to our growth. Thank you so much for all of your support.
YEA is fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Institute, all donations will be processed by them.
