The Next Generation Climate Justice Action Camp (NGCJAC) is a seven day action camp to empower youth around the state of Oregon and northern California by providing age-appropriate training and mentoring. The workshops, trainings, and activities will provide a group of approximately 50 young activists between the ages of 14 and 18 with the tools and underlying information that they need in order to properly engage in systemic climate justice organizing with a cross-movement emphasis. Teens will come together to form alliances, learn from experienced mentors and frontline organizers, and gain skills in a dedicated setting.
The full cost to run the camp is over $500 per camper. Registration is only $150 and over 90% of previous atteendees recieved financial assistance from one of our scholarships with 75% attending the camp for free. No one is turned away for lack of funds.Donations help us to provide full and partial scholarships. .
