“YEA Camp was a pivotal step in my activism. The work that I, my fellow campers, and our camp leaders did shaped the way I approach my IOI [issue of importance], human trafficking, today.  It also helped prepare me to articulate my passion and gave me confidence in the way I present myself as a youth who often faces ageism—a discouraging challenge. YEA Camp helped me hone my skills, develop my knowledge, and build my convictions, which I want to use in full force to help develop, foster, and encourage future YEA Campers. I call on the experiences I had and growth we did together at YEA Camp to make my work stronger and more powerful.”
