Since 2009, Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp has been training aspiring progressive activists from all over the country and beyond to make a bigger difference in the world. YEA Camp’s life-changing sessions not only train campers to be more strategic and effective changemakers for the social justice causes they care about, but campers often describe YEA Camp as one of the best experiences of their life. YEA Camp also offers online resources to help people of any age get started or get serious in their activism, including the free ebooks The Beginner’s Guide to Changing the World and Kid-Friendly Vegan Cookbook. YEA Camp is for youth ages 12-17, and it offers financial aid for those who need it. Anyone too old to attend is invited to apply to be on staff over the summer.
