Young people, ages 18-15, who are passionate, fearless and willing to learn are needed. The National Minority AIDS Council is looking for fierce youth leaders who will commit to ending the HIV epidemic. Young people living with HIV or on PrEP, LGBTQ, youth of color, and young cisgender and transgender women are particularly encouraged to apply. Through the NMAC’s Youth Initiative, young people can learn from peers and elders in the HIV movement. This will be the seventh cycle of this seven-month program with support from ViiV Healthcare, the Magic Johnson Foundation and Advocates for Youth. The program will provide unique leadership and educational opportunities through online webinars, peer-to-peer networking, and advocacy training. This will support the building of new skills that will allow the scholars to engage and carry out community level partnerships to address and advocate for persons living with and impacted by HIV. Youth scholars will have the opportunity to be paired with a mentor to support their success throughout the program. Apply today online. Applications are due April 28. Recipients will get one coach ticket for air, train or bus to attend NMAC’s National Conference, USCA in Washington, D.C. Also, a four-night stay in a hotel Sept. 6-10, per diem, and conference registration. For more information or questions, please contact Pavneet Kaur for more information at pkaur@nmac.org or visit the NMAC website.
