Youth Conference

WHEN?          01 – 04 July 2019

THEME:         Youth taking the lead and fight against risky behavior

WHERE?        Nelson Mandela University

This conference was attended by learners all over the Sarah Baartman’s District and it was a mix of both genders. The main purpose of the conference was to teach the youth of South Africa about the risky behaviors that they get themselves in such as unprotected sexual activity, illegal substance and drug abuse which are commonly used by the youth. We learned about many things in the conference but the main lessons were about how we can prevent ourselves from getting HIV and that we shouldn’t be discriminating the LGBTIQ community.
