Summer Camp August 10th–16th, 2020

Thank you for your interest in participating in Y-WE Write (Reimagined)! Depending on what Phase our state is in, we will either offer this program digitally or as a day camp. We will determine which option 2 weeks before camp. While our summer offerings will feel different this year, our hope is to offer Y-WE Write as an in-person program. 

Space will be limited in order to ensure we continue to follow the required social distancing guidelines.

We are not able to provide transportation support for these in-person programs. If this is a barrier, please contact Tayah ( and we will do what we can to support you to navigate the logistics.

All Y-WE programs have an adult mentorship component. The ratio is one mentor per two youth participants and they attend the activities in a group all together. We find this to be a fun, low pressure way for adults and youth to mingle and get to know one another organically.

It was paradigm-shifting. Thank you all SO much. I really hope to return and stay connected.

Participants will not be charged tuition. Participants and families are encouraged to make donations to Y-WE if they so choose.
