THE STORY:

Youth Empowered Action (YEA) is a leadership program for teens who want to change the world, and we are ready to take our organization 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, doing community outreach, and speaking at legislative hearings--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. And because you know us, you know that our programs are completely life-changing and transformative for the youth who participate. You can read about our most recent summer and accomplishments of our campers here. But we aren’t resting on our laurels. Our goal is to go BIG. We have a strategic plan to grow us to be able to reach hundreds more youth each summer in just a few short years, and thousands of youth in the years to come. We also have plans to expand our programs by growing our online presence, and developing new programs to reach youth during the school year.

If you know YEA, 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 summer 2013. 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.

YEA is fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Institute, all donations will be processed by them.
