THE STORY:

Help send my 13 yr old daughter to activist training camp this summer! Shayla is already working on LGBT, social justice and bullying issues in her school and around Western Mass.

From the YEA web site:

"TEENAGERS ARE POWERFUL AND CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. BUT WITHOUT TRAINING AND SUPPORT, THEY OFTEN DON’T.

YEA Camp was founded on the belief that, from a young age, people are naturally idealistic and compassionate and want to help others. They can see the world for what it could be and instinctively want to take action to make the world a better place. Yet, despite thousands of hours in school, most young people do not learn skills, have role models, or receive encouragement to address some of the biggest problems in our society. Without being instilled with the tools and belief that they can make a difference, people can become resigned or cynical about having the power to impact the world around them. YEA Camp is committed to filling this gap — to ensuring that people who want to make a difference in the world have the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to do so.

Since 2009, we’ve been doing everything we can to help young people connect with what matters to them and to take action to make a difference. We’ve worked with hundreds of inspiring young people who tell us that YEA Camp was one of the most impactful and life-changing experiences they have had. Our campers have gone on to do amazing things to make their schools, communities, and world a better place, and we are honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such inspired and inspiring young change-makers.

YEA Camp is run by educators and activists with years of experience working with youth and bringing about social change for a more peaceful and sustainable world."
