Youth Education Community Outreach (YECO)

YECO is a TCAT action group led by youth climate leaders in Thurston County. YECO is a group focused on providing intergenerational support and networking opportunities for young climate leaders. YECO provides a space for young people to collaborate on climate actions, education and outreach in their community. Youth of all ages are welcomed to join, and no prior experience with climate action is necessary. 

YECO meets once a month, usually the last Wednesday of each month. Please email Lynn Fitz-Hugh at to be added to YECO's Google Group to stay updated on meeting dates and YECO actions and events!
