THE STORY:

HI EVERYONE. My names Lexi and I'm a sixteen year old highschool student at Cleveland High School. I am passionate about issues that youth face in the Portland/Multnomah County community. The issues that I'm passionate are as follows:

-Transit Justice

-Youth voice in schools/decisions that directly impact youth

-Youth -Adult partnerships (where there is equal communication, ideas, and a space created where these people can both work together using eachothers resources in an equitable way)

-Native Youth Activism (for modern/"colonized" Native Youth)

-Bullying/gang and dating violence

-Stereotypes against minority ethnic backgrounds 

-White privilege/Cultural Appropriation

I think that YEA camp will help me develop leadership skills that I have lacked on and can/have attempted to improve within this previous year. I am immensely involved with two organizations (the Multnomah Youth Commission, Odyssey Youth Council). Through these activities I have gained opportunities to present public testimony to city and county officials about YouthPass for Portland Public School students, and the Right ONI Budget (an ask of 200,000 dollars), as well as created multiple workshops and presented them to the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, presented a workshop about Youth-Adult partnerships, ways to start a campaign, and how to present public testimony at the National Youth Bike Summit in Seattle, WA, and also have conducted multiple focus groups with other youth organizers. I also serve as a Co chair on one of my committees and have ran dozens of meetings leading adults and youth.

Please support me in getting to Youth Empowerment Camp this summer so that I can develop more skills in helping the youth that face injustice in my community. 

Live long and prosper,

Elexis Moyer

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
