The Vibrant Young Voices (VYV) Consortium is a dynamic and strategic partnership, led by Y+ Global and accompanied by esteemed organizations including the Coalition of Children Affected by AIDS (CCABA) and PATA, funded by Robert Carr Fund. This consortium is driven by a shared vision of empowering excluded adolescents and young people, ensuring their voices are heard in policy-making, funding decisions, and program development at all levels.
The VYV Consortium focuses on children, adolescents, and young people living
with HIV (YPLHIV) to strengthen networks, increase advocacy capacity, and
improve service delivery for people aged 14 to 30. Recognising the changing
impact of HIV throughout the life cycle, the VYV Consortium seeks to address the
social and structural exclusion faced by these adolescents and youth, while also
fostering a culture of learning and improvement for long-term change.
The VYV Youth Advisory Group plays a crucial role in the Vibrant Young Voices
(VYV) Consortium, providing advice on ethical youth inclusion and engagement.
They contribute to research, mentorship activities, and offer guidance to enhance
staff knowledge in effective youth engagement. The Youth Advisory Group
ensures meaningful participation of young people in decision-making processes,
creating an inclusive and empowering environment within the VYV Consortium.
