Leadership and Activism, Learning at its Best

Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camp

Since my TEDx talk was released, I have been receiving lots of emails from people wanting to learn how to implement the ideas I shared. I’ve also been hearing from humane educators and groups doing fantastic work across the globe. For my next several blog posts, I wanted to share some of their great work.

Imagine a week-long summer camp for 12-17-year-olds who want to make a difference. Imagine a beautiful setting in either Portland, Oregon, or Santa Cruz, California. Imagine how these young people might become inspired and engaged in just one week to become lifelong solutionaries for a better world.

It’s happening. Youth Empowered Action (YEA) Camps are offered three times this summer in July and August.

Find out more.

About zoeweil

I'm the co-founder and President of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE). IHE works to create a world in which we all live humanely, sustainably, and peaceably. We do this by training people to be humane educators who teach about the pressing issues of our time and inspire people to work for change while making healthy, humane, and restorative choices in their daily lives. We also work to advance the field of humane education, and to provide tools and inspiration to people everywhere so that they can live examined, meaningful lives. I'm also a writer. So far I've written six books and several articles.

  1. This is exciting Zoe! Thanks for this information. I will be continuing to investigate this group and see if I can get involved in Portland this year. Thanks so much for sharing this information and how to put HUMANE EDUCATION into ACTION.
