Mia's YEA Camp Volunteer-a-Thon to Pay It Forward

Goal thermometer

Hello! My name is Mia, I'm 17 and live in NYC with my 5 cats and 2 fish. I've gone to YEA camp for two years now, and absolutely LOVE it!! It was a great way to fuel my activist spirit and learn how to get involved with the issues I care most about.

Last year when I went to YEA camp, my IOI - or issue of importance was climate change. Climate change affects all of us in so many ways, and in years to come the climate becomes more and more prevalent.

This is why I created the "Greeniery" a zine based in NYC that allows people to read about not only affects of the climate today, but easy NYC solutions. Working with my art teacher, I have crafted a plan on the making and distributing of this zine, and I am so excited!

Your donation will help other passionate teens like me fuel their activism at YEA camp!

Want to learn more about YEA Camp? YEA Camp is a social justice leadership camp that trains aspiring activists to make a bigger difference on causes they care about. Over the past decade, we've trained nearly 1,000 people to get more active in their communities and to take action to make our world a better place. While some organizations raise funds by running a 5K or selling cookies, YEA Camp wanted to do something mission-driven that encourages people to get more involved in activism and to celebrate it in community. That's why you're here, reading about our first ever Volunteer-a-Thon! Why is this so important? YEA Camp granted financial aid to 51 of the 100 participants at camp this summer, including 17 who received full scholarships, and 8 who paid between $1-100. We funded $66,400 worth of financial aid for all of these amazing humans to be able to attend. This was only possible thanks to the support of donations to the YEA Camp scholarship fund. Your donation makes it possible for YEA Camp to say yes to just as many or more aspiring activists wanting to come to camp next year. Thank you so much for your support!
