Resource Guide

Every year, we publish a Greater Philadelphia AIDS Resource Guide. The Resource Guide is full of useful organizations in the greater Philadelphia area. We include organizations that serve people living with HIV/AIDS, as well as organizations that are not HIV-specific but that might be helpful. Our focus is the Philadelphia metropolitan area, which includes surrounding counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. You will notice that there we have included some organizations outside of this area, especially national organizations. This publication actually contains a number of different documents. You can also download the individual PDF.

At YUC, low-income young people organize campaigns geared towards ensuring high quality public education for all young Philadelphians. YUC wins positive educational policy changes through school-and community-based organizing. A diverse group of young people comes together to identify common concerns, and act collectively as key stakeholders to create strategies to influence policy-making, with the goal of carrying out comprehensive educational reforms in the Philadelphia public school system. Our approach to youth-led advocacy amplifies the voice and impact of young people and the communities that support them towards creating systemic change; and creates the conditions for young people to simultaneously develop as critically strategic leaders.
