YEA Announces Launch of New Grant Program for All Campers!

Youth Empowered Action Camp is thrilled to announce the launch of a new kickstarter grant program to help fund inspiring camper projects to make a difference in their community.

YEA Camp is a week-long summer camp for youth 12-17 who are passionate about activism and social change, and by the end of the session every camper creates an action plan for how they will address a social issue of importance to them. This summer, thanks to the committed support of a very generous donor, each and every camper will have the opportunity to apply for and receive a micro grant of $100 toward their efforts. In addition, one camper at each of YEA’s four sessions will receive a $1,000 grant for their project!

At YEA Camp, participants develop their confidence to take action on what they believe in, and they learn skills like planning a campaign, running a school club, communicating effectively, and fundraising, which they can apply to a cause they care about. When they leave, they are ready to take action and make a difference.

Take a look at some of the inspiring young leaders who attend YEA Camp – like Tegan organizing an assembly at her school to raise awareness about human trafficking,  Ramon persuading his high school to institute a recycling program and put recycle bins in every classroom, Bianca working with the school club she started to raise money for her local animal shelter, and Emily initiating an anti-bullying program at her high school. We are thrilled that YEA Campers in 2012 will have well-deserved funds to strengthen their efforts to bring about social change.

If you know any young people passionate about making the world a kinder place, let them know that YEA Camp has spots available at sessions in northern California, Oregon, and New Jersey. Visit www.yeacamp.org for dates, details, and to register.
