BECAUSE WE
LOVE WHAT WE DO

The spirit of participation and sharing of information, resources, experiences and technical assistance to the best of members’ abilities underpins YVC as it strives to address the issues of LGBTQ+ youth with integrity, professionalism, and commitment.

PROJECTS

On the Journey is a toolkit designed to help you provide gender and

sexuality education to people who work in social services, health, education, and sport. This
toolkit will be especially useful for people who work with, or who care for young people. This toolkit is developed by Boutokaan Inaomataia ao Mauriia Binabinaine Association (BIMBA) and Youth Voices Count. This was funded by the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

In 2017, under the #Uproot agenda, Youth PACT designed #Uproot report cards on the 2016 Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS to assess how well a country is doing in achieving its commitments on adolescents and young people, included in the 2016 Political Declaration on HIV & AIDS. This has been an ongoing engagement between UNAIDS and Youth Voices Count. The Uproot Report Card has been implemented in seven countries.
