The purpose of this “Resource Tool Kit” is to enhance the capacity of community-based organizations to create their own Youth HIV Policy Advisor (YHPA) programs. The YHPA Program trains young people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in policy advocacy and provides them resources to educate state, city, and county level policymakers to make better decisions related to HIV prevention and treatment. In this resource, we provide tips and tricks learned over the first three years of program. Community-based organizations may choose to replicate some aspects of our YHPA program and/or may adapt some aspects to fit their unique needs and circumstances.
