American Psychological Association and BET Rap It Up Campaign are working together to create a new HIV prevention campaign for youth. They are looking for committed high school youth across the country to apply to be selected for the APA BET youth advisory board.
The deadline to apply is Friday, June 14th!
We are looking for committed youth who are passionate about serving their community, have lots of creative ideas and interested in issues related to health and well-being.
The APA/BET youth advisory board will be a group of teenagers, ranging in age from 14-18 years old, across the country that will help the American Psychological Association and BET Rap It Up Campaign to plan a new HIV/AIDS awareness campaign.
What will I be doing as part of the APA/BET Youth Advisory Board?
The APA/BET Youth Advisory Board member will serve for one year.
Meetings will be held online/calls monthly to provide feedback on the campaign.
The APA/BET Youth Advisory Board members will:
1) provide feedback on campaign ideas
2) help to develop campaign materials
3) give information about youth attitudes/behaviors
Upon selection to the APA/BET Youth Advisory Board, we will ask for parental/ caregiver permission for participation in the APA/BET Youth Advisory Board.
APA/BET Youth Advisory Board members will get leadership experience, professional development guidance and there will be some gift incentives provided to participants.
Please spread the word to 14-18 year olds in the US!
