The goal of this project is to 1) study Aboriginal (Inuit, Metis, and First Nations (Status and Non-Status) youth leadership in HIV prevention; and nurture existing leaders in the fight against HIV or AIDS within Aboriginal communities by :
1) Learning what motivates young people to become active participants in HIV prevention within their own communities.
2) Determine how to invite other Aboriginal youth to participate in HIV prevention activism.
3) Develop HIV prevention and community-specific materials that are built “by youth, for youth”.
