WE SPEAK Summer Advocacy Institute Recruitment

YWCHAC’s WE SPEAK Summer Advocacy Institute application is now available. We are looking for young women of color ages 13-21 (HIV positive & HIV negative) who have an interest in women’s issues, policy and advocacy work and becoming a resource for other young women in their families, schools and immediate communities. The WE SPEAK Summer Advocacy Institute is an eight (8) week program where 25 young women of color will be provided with the skills to mobilize peers to speak up and out on issues that put them at risk for HIV infection. WE SPEAK members will be trained on advocacy skills and techniques to create a campaign to engage their peers in their HIV prevention and advocacy efforts. WE SPEAK members do receive a stipend for their work.

Upon completion of the Summer Advocacy Institute, WE SPEAK members spend the year working on issues and campaigns that are discussed during the summer at weekly meetings held on Friday evenings.

The application accompanied by the two (2) recommendation letters is due June 7, 2013. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact via email at
