MISSION STATMENT Championing programming that empowers HIV positive youth to succeed individually and as leaders to advocate for the rights of the HIV positive community. VISION STATEMENT We envision empowered youth who are financially sustainable, lead a healthy lifestyle and have the education and leadership skills to actively lead an HIV positive community that is able to support and advocate not only for the HIV community but also educate society as a whole on HIV prevention, facts, and misnomers.
Our advocacy to help HIV positive people - including the youth, adults, and families - through awareness and education to promote their personal and social well-being has inspired the creation of HYPE (HIV+ Youth that Pledge to Empower Themselves and Others).
This nonprofit organization exists to transform the lives of youth, young adults, families, and communities living with HIV. Our youngest member enrolled in the program is 5 years old. We aim to cater to everyone in the community who needs attention and assistance. Through our comprehensive and relevant services and programs at HYPE, we provide the link to HIV awareness, sufficient treatment, and support.
We empower our members to become leaders in their own community through immersions, mentoring and leadership trainings. Our founder, Lamar Yarborough, was diagnosed with HIV and cancer when he was just 18. Immensely grateful for surviving his personal ordeals, he is committed to help all people living with HIV through the help of the HYPE members who share 20 years of experience with the HIV/AIDS community. Lamar is especially passionate about providing much-needed inspiration and hope for the HIV positive youth in our program.
