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.
About our founder:
On March 28, 2010, on his eighteenth birthday, Robert was diagnosed with AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). In December of the same year, he was also diagnosed with Cancer. Despite these lives changing events, Robert prevailed. With much prayer and strong will he beat cancer and became HIV undetectable (controlled).
After three years of living with the virus, Robert formed his own organization, HIV Positive Youth That Pledge to Empower Themselves and Others or (H.Y.P.E). H.Y.P.E was created from inspiration, love, and compassion.
