The new school year is just under way and YEA! MN is already hard at work.  We kicked off the fall season with the YEA! MN Student Action Training to shake of the summer dust and get students geared up as critical leaders in their school communities.  Eleven students from 7 different Twin Cities high schools spent their last Saturday afternoon of the summer learning new tools to empower their success as youth organizers in their school environmental clubs.

YEA! MN is unique in that we are an authentically student directed program.  This means that my job is not to tell students what we should do but ask them what they want to do.  Of course, I still provide feedback and suggestions, however the purpose is to help them more fully think through their action projects, ideas, and what they want to accomplish.  The place where this happens is at our youth steering committee meetings.  Twice a month our students come together to learn about issues, discuss questions they have, invite in speakers, and plan events.

We have wrapped up a fantastic year at YEA! MN.Our students have wrestled with big issues, learned about organizing, and taken action on projects they care about; all while going to high school, doing their homework, and participating in other community and extra curricular work.I have never been so impressed and proud of a group of youth- no, scratch that, I have never been so proud of a group of people!

The 2014 YEA! MN Retreat was definitely the best team bonding experience we’ve had so far this year. We’ve gained many new members compared to last year and over one night we became very close. We decided as a group we would take a trip to the Lake Country Land School Farm in Wisconsin. Our first day on the farm we got a tour of the farm and later on got to plant various types of squash and pumpkin. It’s safe to say we are the fastest planters YEA! MN has ever seen. During the planting process we were able to get to know each other more which made it more of a bonding experience.
