The Youth Advocacy Committee (YAC) works to promote the holistic values of positive youth development and youth voice, for awareness of HIV/AIDS and sexual health. We believe that with accurate information and consistent support youth are capable of making change, directing their own activity, and taking responsibility with regards to HIV prevention and sexual health. As youth leadership program, YAC, serves as a peer education program for the community as well as a resource to community stakeholders seeking to enhance the health and well-being of youth and young adults. As a resource to community stakeholders we assert that any efforts to improve the health and well-being of youth requires that all young people have access to services, supports, and opportunities to develop a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging, and empowerment.
