What is the Next Generation Climate Justice Action Camp?

The Next Generation Climate Justice Action Camp (NGCJAC) is a five day action camp to empower youth by providing age-appropriate training and mentoring. The workshops, trainings, and activities will provide a group of approximately 50 young activists 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.

What skills and workshops will be offered?

Right now we will be offering trainings on campaign organizing, media skills, demonstration planning, know your rights trainings, art for activism, drumming for demonstrations, intersectionality, cultural sensitivity and more! We are still working on content, if you have of specific trainings you would like to see, or if you have any skills to share, let us know!
