Woodstock Farm Sanctuary hosted the Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp this summer. YEA is a program that trains and supports teens who want to make a difference in the world. The camp strives to show the interconnection of seemingly unrelated social justice issues — from animal advocacy to poverty, pollution to racism – thus expanding the campers’ understanding of the challenges we all face and deepening their desire and ability to help.

YEA teaches skills such as grassroots outreach, campaign planning, fundraising, and arts activism, while also reinforcing the notion that each of us has a huge capacity to bring about change.

The sanctuary setting was apparently inspirational for the participants, as so many of them chose Animal Advocacy as their focus that YEA created a special, issue-specific camp to accommodate and focus these driven teens. We’re so proud of the campers. To see young people spending their summer months learning how to be effective advocates was as inspirational to us as the rescued animals were to them.

Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp is a life-changing camp for world-changing teens! Visit their website to learn more about their programs and upcoming sessions.
