Let me introduce you to Nora Kramer, who has dedicated herself as an educator and activist to be a force for good in the world. In combining her obsession with activism and social change with her passion for working with youth she founded Youth Empowered Action (or YEA, pronounced ‘Yay’) Camp in 2009. YEA Camp for teen activists is a summer camp that has been running in the US for 10 years and she now even runs one for adults! The camps are all about encouraging people to find the cause that they are passionate about and create an action plan so they leave this incredible summer camp feeling ready to be activists in the world and to make a difference.
