One important way you can help YEA Camp is to help get the word out about our program to potential campers, parents, and people or organizations who work with youth. See the blurb below for sample text. As a young grassroots organization, we rely on word of mouth and our community of supporters to spread the word. Your help with publicity means we can put money we’d use on advertising towards our scholarship fund.
Here are a few ideas, let us know if you have others:
2. Print out or have us send you some of our posters to put up at local schools, libraries, cafes, book stores, and around town.
3. Talk to supportive teachers or school administrators to ask them to help get the word out.
4. Reach out to relevant blogs, online calendars, progressive organizations, houses of worship, youth organizations, or other groups you think might be interested in telling their members about YEA Camp.
5. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join our GOTW (Get Out The Word) Network. Check out our blurb below you can send to your contacts:

Life-Changing Summer Camp for World-Changing Teens!
Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a unique and inspiring leadership summer camp for youth 12-17 who care about community service, activism, and social justice. At a week-long overnight program in a beautiful camp setting, YEA campers build the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to take action on issues they care about including bullying, homelessness, animal rights, climate change, or homophobia. Youth who attend YEA Camp have said that it was one of the most impactful and memorable experiences of their life. Many have gone on to start school clubs, plan fundraisers for nonprofits, organize community clean-ups, give testimony at public hearings, and more. Best of all, campers will form amazing bonds, do things they never thought possible, and have the time of their lives!
“This camp has truly changed my life. You have inspired me to do so much with my life and to make the world a truly better place. You have inspired me to believe in myself and to not just say ‘I’m just a kid, what can I do?’ Because of you, I have been able to actually make a difference.” -Bianca, 15
