YEA Academy is a free monthly Saturday workshop program for 12-17 year olds who want to make a difference in their community or the world.

At YEA, participants will learn ways to bring about a change on social justice issues they care about, such as:

  • homophobia
  • climate change
  • racism
  • animal rights
  • bullying

Like our flagship program, YEA Camp, YEA Academy’s curriculum is based on four areas we feel are critical for activists to develop: knowledge, skills, confidence and community to take action on the issues that matter to them.

From 11am-4pm one Saturday a month, youth have an opportunity to learn key skills like:

  • running an effective school club
  • fundraising
  • running a campaign
  • and arts activism

All while finding out about inspiring ways others are having an impact in their community, building self confidence, creating a plan to impact a societal problem, and making friends with other young change-makers.

YEA Academy is being run in partnership with Portland Parks and Recreation. Spaces are limited, so please register early.
