JUNIOR CHANGEMAKERS

YAPA presents

for middle school students

About the Camp

This camp will equip you with the skills, knowledge, and legislative literacy to be effective advocates, while having fun collaborating with other students with similar interests! Camp speakers will include real policy makers with extensive background who will share about their experience and answer students’ questions.  Finally, campers will plan and execute a project on an issue of their choice with the help of our mentors, with a chance to win awards at the closing ceremony for excellence, creativity, and more.
