YEA Camp Scholarship Program to Help Teens Change the World!

THE STORY:

My name is Carson and I am 17 years old, I have been a vegan for almost an entire year now. I would like to go YEA camp so I can learn to become a voice for the animals. Going to an animal sanctuary will further fuel my passion and connection to the cause I want to fight for. Being surrounded by people my age would definately give me a better perspective and more support so I can become the best advocate/activist I can!

Youth Empowered Action wrote -

This fundraiser is for campers who are raising funds to contribute toward their tuition to attend YEA Camp this summer on a scholarship. Each camper will create a profile page explaining why they want to attend camp.


Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a unique and inspiring summer leadership program for youth 12-17 who want to make a difference in the world. At a week-long sleep-away program in a beautiful camp setting, YEA campers choose an issue of importance to them (for example, some have chosen climate change, racism, homophobia, homelessness, or animal rights) and they build the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to take action on that issue once they get home. Campers also build lifelong friendships between youth with similar interests in bettering their community and society. Youth who have participated in our programs report that the camp was one of the most fun, memorable and life-changing experiences they have had, and, with YEA’s support, many have gone on to start school clubs, plan fundraisers for nonprofits, organize a call-in to Congress, and attend hearings to comment about important community issues. Check out our website www.yeacamp.org to learn more about this unique program.

YEA Camp is fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Instutite and all donations will be processed by them
