YEA! Youth Epilepsy Advocates™
Become a YEA! Youth Epilepsy Advocate Today!
Youth Epilepsy Advocates™ (YEA!™) empowers youth with epilepsy and their allies to be community advocates. YEA! connects youth to one another for inspiration, encouragement and sharing of life experiences.
YEA! is a leadership program for youth ages 14-18 across the Northwest providing opportunities to meet other youth living with epilepsy. YEA! is also for those allies, or friends, of someone who has epilepsy who want to support the cause to bring awareness and education about epilepsy to the community.
Through YEA! you can meet others, build long lasting friendships, learn more about epilepsy, and join in the cause to help educate the community about seizure disorders.
Participants in the YEA! leadership program can help plan and organize EFNW program activities like special events, conferences and during the annual youth summer camps. YEA! participants are asked to form teams and help raise funds for the annual Northwest Run/Walk for Epilepsy. During the annual Camp Discovery, YEA! leadership members are asked to help be leaders to other campers helping staff to ensure the camp experience is safe and a good experience for all.
