Get involved as a focal point
The Youth LEAD network is growing and expanding, reaching greater distances to include hard-to-reach YKPs across Asia and the Pacific. Our network is made up of youth focal points and network partners working in collaboration to address the needs of YKPs and to ensure no one is left behind.
Young key populations can get involved with Youth LEAD by registering to become a focal point. Focal points work to support Youth LEAD at the community or country-level and advocate for the needs of YKPs. Youth LEAD Focal points may be allowed to attend workshops facilitated by Youth LEAD to strengthen educational and leadership skills. Focal points may also be able to collaborate on campaigns, reports and existing research and attend international conferences and forums (if funding permits).
If you are a young person aged 14 - 30 and based in the Asia Pacific region, and identify yourself as a young key population or working for youth in the HIV response, you can join our network. All you have to do is fill out this simple application form to become a Youth LEAD Focal Point.
