DoSomething.org Boot Camps bring together a diverse group of young community leaders, activists and social entrepreneurs for a day of networking and training. The day is dedicated to giving each attendee the tools to grow and sustain their ideas, projects and organizations. In short, it's a party full of young people passionate about social change.
Locations: NYC, SF, and Atl.
All participants (25 or UNDER) are actively engaged in improving their communities locally and/or globally. Attendees who get the most out of our Boot Camps are those who have a solid well thought out project plan, have already begun to turn their project ideas into action, or have an existing project or organization.

Funding gained through Give for Youth platform will be used to secure a venue large enough to host over 250 young social change agents, materials for each participant, and snacks (you gotta have snacks!) in San Francisco - a location we've never hosted a Boot Camp at before.
At DoSomething.org data is EVERYTHING. We constantly survey our audience (13-25 year olds) to find our what causes they care about, what their passions, hobbies, favorites, TV shows, and music are.
We use this data to create national campaigns that make it easy and fun for young people to have meaningful impact on causes they care about.
We've figured out how to use SMS to talk about teen pregnancy to over 102K+ young people.
We've created a mobile to Facebook app that helped hundreds of shelter animals get adopted.
We've used the power of "thumb socks" to get over 220K young people to stop texting and driving.
All this happened because we listen to data, build products that are accessible, and are pretty darn passionate about social change.
