Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a summer camp for social change. Since 2009, we have helped over 500 teens get involved in community service on an issue they care about.
At YEA Camp, campers create an action plan to make a difference when they go home, and they have gone on to do so many inspiring things -- like starting school environmental clubs, raising thousands of dollars for the homeless, launching anti-bullying initiatives, getting more vegetarian options in the school cafeteria, volunteering at local animal shelters, and so much more.
This year, campers are participating in a Volunteer-a-Thon, where they choose a way they are inspired to volunteer in their community, and you -- yes YOU! -- sponsor them to volunteer! This is a tangible way to show these inspiring young people that they have the support of their friends and families, and for you to encourage them to keep volunteering. All funds will go towards YEA Camp's scholarship funds to make YEA Camp accessible to more campers next summer.

Thanks so much for your support!
