BENEFITING: ZUNI YOUTH ENRICHMENT PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Nov 22, 2016
SUMMER CAMP FOR ZUNI YOUTH
The Zuni Pueblo is located in rural and remote Western New Mexico. ZYEP provides the only summer developmental opportunity for youth, a camp with activities focused on leadership development, health, wellbeing, and culture.
Adolescent counselors serve as role models for youth ages 6-12. The summer camp program is so successful that waiting lists have developed and demand has created a need for a second camp. Last year, 250 youth applied for camp and we were only able to accept 70.
This Giving Tuesday, ZYEP is raising $10,000 to expand the summer camp and double the opportunities provided to Zuni youth. Donations up to $10,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Newman’s Own Foundation. Please visit our website at www.zyep.org to learn more about our work!
