We asked some recent Encampers what they are doing in their home communities.
I have participated in the clean-up in Dade City (Florida). We cleaned up Lock Street so people can walk without having to step over or on trash. I organized and marched in our Ban Against Gun Violence march which made a big impact on our community. The majority of the youth were involved with our march and there were many adults from the migrant community, as well as, from the rest of the community that we empowered to come together.

I have given back to my community by volunteering at the local Boys and Girls Club. I used to go there when I was young and it was great to reconnect with this community and be a role model for the younger kids. Since the EFC, I have been leading the Students of Color Alliance at my school. This is a club and space for students to gather and celebrate their differences and appreciate each other. Malachi Longmore. NJ,  2016

I spend my time at school helping working class, predominantly Black and Latinx families of Middletown by volunteering as an after-school teaching assistant at the Green Street Teaching and Learning Center. Since my EFC experience, I’ve been part of a lot of protests that centered around fighting the Trump administration, the deportation of immigrants who have come to Middletown, and for the women of color at Wesleyan and beyond to feel safe and supported on campus. K.C.

Due to many requests, we have extended the 2019 application deadline to March 4. There is still time for a young person (1518) who is passionate about social justice to apply!

The Encampment for Citizenship prepares young people to be informed and responsible global citizens and leaders in the struggle for social justice. Encampers (ages 15–18) of different ethnic, religious, gender identity, geographic and economic backgrounds live and learn together, creating a diverse democratic community inspired and prepared to create a more just world.
