7th Annual Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp offers a unique twist to Summer Camps for Youth

“My experience was great! I made amazing friends and I learned a lot, but most of all, the combination of the two left me inspired and excited to make a difference! Everything I learned inspired me to take action on issues I’m passionate about, too! In addition to taking on bullying, I’m going vegan, and hopefully forming a biking group! This camp was amazing and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.”
