Hello! Thank you so much for your interest in YEA Camp and supporting young changemakers who want to make a bigger difference on a cause they care about!
This fundraiser is for teens who are raising funds to contribute toward their tuition to attend YEA Camp this summer on a scholarship. As background, 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. YEA campers choose an issue of importance to them (for example, some have chosen climate change, racism, LGBTQ equality, homelessness, or animal rights), and they build the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to take action on that issue once they get home.
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 Camp’s support, many have gone on to start school clubs, plan fundraisers for nonprofits, testify before their City Council, change school and community policies, and much more.
Check out our website www.yeacamp.org to learn more about this unique program. The funds you contribute here show each YEA Camper that you support and believe in them, as well as helps offset YEA Camp's costs in running world-class life-changing programs that grant many scholarships to youth from low-income families.
Thank you so much for your support!
YEA Camp is fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Institute, and all donations will be processed, and credit cards charged, in their name.
