One moment please...

Register for MEEA's first Young Environmental Leaders (YEL) events!

MEEA’s YEL membership is for those passionate about the environment, and concerned in particular with issues like climate change, environmental justice and equity, regenerative agriculture, biodiversity, and green careers. YEL is an action-oriented, youth-led group that advances MEEA’s mission using the voices and brilliance of our younger citizens. 


**Please register for the virtual or in-person focus groups OR BOTH! below.

There is also an option to add-on attendance at the "Conservation Day at the Capitol" in Jefferson City, hosted by the Conservation Federation of Missouri. That runs from 8am to 1 pm on April 3. MEEA will be providing your lunch for that! After lunch we will then convene the In-person Focus Group from 2-4 pm, also at the Capital.

The Virtual Focus Group will be on Zoom on EARTH DAY, April 22 from 7-8:30 pm. You will receive a zoom link about 1 week prior to the event. 


The first 20 participants who register and attend the "Day at the Capital" events will receive a 1-year FREE MEEA membership (valued at $25.00) and a $25.00 Gas Card to help cover your travel cost!

You do not have to attend the whole time, but if you DO attend we will order pizza for you so please let us know your intention!

Please select one option from the list

To help us plan for our time together, please share what's most important to you when it comes to the environment. Having your voice heard? Learning about green career options? Learning how to be a more effective communicator? Taking action for environmental justice? Is there a specific topic or issue that you are most concerned about?
