Hi-my name is Quentin and I am hoping to raise funds to help me attend YEA Camp this summer. We were supposed to take a test this year to tell us what we would be good at in life. I am hoping my experience at camp can help with that.
I care about people and animals in need. I currently volunteer to help feed the elderly, volunteer at an animal sanctuary, volunteer at our local vegan outreach, and am very passionate about living a vegan lifestyle. I would like to have the opportunity to learn how to help make the world a better place.
The best part about this camp though is-it's all vegan!
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.
