Dear Act-MA:

We would like to post the following message to the list, thank you!

Social Justice Summer Camp for Teens (8/9 - 8/16)

*Life-Changing Summer Camp for Youth Making a Difference!*

 *YEA Camp is a unique and inspiring leadership summer camp for youth 12-17
who care about community service, activism and social justice. A week-long
sleep-away program in a beautiful camp location, YEA is designed to be a
fun and transformative experience that builds life-long friendships between
youth with similar interests. Our program also provides a meaningful
opportunity for campers to learn more about some of the issues facing our
planet and to get inspired and empowered to take action on those issues.
Campers choose an issue of importance to them (for example, some have
chosen climate change, racism, homophobia, homelessness, animal rights) and
at YEA they build the knowledge, skills, confidence, and community to take
action on that issue long after camp is over. Youth who have participated
in our programs report that the camp was one of the most fun, rewarding and
life-changing experiences they have had, and, with YEA's community support,
have gone on to start school clubs, plan fundraisers for nonprofits,
organize community clean-ups, and attend hearings to comment about
important community issues. For more information, visit our website

 *"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, Age 15*
