Alfredo Smith wrote -Hello! My name is Alfredo Smith. I'm a 25 year old male that resides in Detroit, MI. I've recently been accepted to attend The 2012 Youth Action Instutute By the Campaign 2 End AIDS (C2EA).
The goal of the Youth Action Institute is to turn out young AIDS activists and leaders. Since its first year in 2005, C2EA brings a diverse group of 14 to 29-year-olds to a college campus and teaches them to become the AIDS policy-makers and protest leaders of today and tomorrow.
With the skills, tools, and experience gained through the YAI, I will be able to return to my community and share my experience with other youth. Teaching them the importance of being involved in policy change. And encouraging them to join me in fighting to save our city!
All applicants that are invited to attend the conference are required to raise $600 to help defer costs. ANY AMOUNT HELPS!. This is where YOU come in! Helping me get to DC to this Institute will help me make change in my community! Thank You!
