Meeting Description:

The Center for Strengthening Youth Prevention Paradigms (SYPP Center) invites you to participate in a webinar with Cristina Jade Peña, a student and advocate who has been instrumental in putting youth inclusion on the agenda at the International AIDS Conference 2012. Ms. Peña will describe the process of expanding youth representation and give a report back from the Global Village.

This webinar is part of the “Third Thursdays Webinar Series,” which is designed for HIV prevention providers serving youth, particularly young gay men and transgender youth of color.



After this webinar, you will be able to:

          1. Explain the mobilization process around youth inclusion in the planning of IAC 2012
          2. Name a minimum of two changes, as a result of youth involvement
          3. Describe lessons learned from this mobilization effort

Housed at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, SYPP Center provides capacity building assistance (CBA) services to communities seeking to prevent HIV/AIDS among youth, with an emphasis on young gay men and transgender youth of color. SYPP Center offers a framework for communities to create sustainable structural changes and build healthy community coalitions that respond to local needs.
