This Friday, April 11th, TechSoup’s NonProfit Commons in Second Life is happy to feature members of the nonprofit Protect Yourself1 (PY1), Executive Director Monique Richert (Chayenn in SL), and PY1 Development Consultant, Tom Kujawski (Incarn8 in SL), who will commemorate the 2nd annual observance of: National Youth HIV AIDS Awareness Day – NYHAAD.
Today’s young people are the first generation who has never known a world without HIV and AIDS. In the United States, one in three new HIV infections are among youth ages 13 to 24.
Through the Safe2Live and Project Arrowhead programs presentation, Chayenn and Incarn8 will inform NPC members about the importance of education, how PY1 keeps At-Risk Youth in the Washington -Baltimore Corridor safe and protected from HIV/STIs infections. Only by investing in young people in all aspects of the HIV and AIDS response we will achieve the dream of an AIDS-free generation.
Join us in Second Life!
