I was very honored that Project Arrowhead program that I founded became a part of the Bme Community. Project Arrowhead program was selected as a recipient of the 2013 Miami Foundation Black Male Engagement Fund. This award provided scholarships for 52 Baltimore City youth to participate in Project Arrowhead and acquire the knowledge and skills vital to becoming future leaders in our community. Since 2006, Project Arrowhead has served 320 adolescent at-risk youth from numerous organizations. Future plans are to develop Project Arrowhead as a turnkey educational program of national prominence for at-risk youth advancing HIV/AIDS prevention and preserving Mustangs throughout the U.S.

Protect Yourself 1 has developed programs designed to educate youth concerning the numerous issues concerning AIDS and HIV diseases, including educational and responsibility training Its team has designed state of the art interactive lessons that can be learned individually or in group settings. Their desire is to expand these programs to a much larger audience. Unfortunately, finding funding to further expand their efforts is difficult to come by.

It has been an honor for me to serve on the board of PY1, Inc. I have seen the educational programs for prevention and awareness created by the in house staff make a positive impact on the youth in the city schools. More of this outreach needs to be provided to youth all over the world. PY1, Inc certainly has created a vehicle that works, via their diverse media presentations, that clearly sends a message to the youth. Lets plow forward to continue to educate these kids in preparation for a responsible and healthy future!

As a Board Member I continue to be amazed by the outreach and impact of this organization. With limited resources of finances and manpower they still reach a wide audience through all forms of media and word of mouth. PY1 is always in an education and awareness mode. Teaching and instructing about ones personal responsibility in life, safe sex and HIV/Aids through printed material, speaking engagements, puppet presentations in schools and equine riding and training at the ranch reaches children and adults of all ages. They do a wonderful job of keeping the public informed and current on these issues. PY1 lives up to their mission and vison statements.

I am proud to have been supporting this organization since 2005. With minimum funds it has learned how to maximize those dollars in order to reach the greatest number of children with the Safe2Live Campaign, the creation of a mobil puppet theater and virtual games. These programs capture the attention and engage children in educational activities that teach them why they should not participate in unsafe activities. The children learn about HIV and AIDS so that they are educated and not just told NO to something that is enticing. They become advocates that teach their friends and family members one on one about the behaviors that can lead someone to become a victim. Thus, creating an unmeasurable communication system that is proactive by making the public aware and educated about HIV and AIDS. This is the best form of prevention in action.

I have been involved with Protect Yourself 1 as a board member since 2005. As a relatively new organization funding has and will remain a vital need to continue the mission of PY1. While everyone I have come in contact with supports the efforts and says PY1 has a great program that increases awareness, provides education on the subject and teaches prevention methods about HIV and associated diseases. What has been amazing is to watch the continued creativity of staff and PY1's partners that continue to develop information, materials and programs that are becoming acknowledged in the community but is making a difference in the lives of children and families around the world.

I have personnally experienced the results of this organization through written and verbal feedback from children and their parents that have attended a puppet presentation. I have become more aware and knowledgeable about the subject because of this organization. Most importantly i know there is now hope and life where there was death and fear before because of the efforts of PY1.

Find a way to fund the work and ideas of PY1 so that more energy and effort would be directed at the problem of HIV and those lives it impacts.

As a female group home owner and administrator, I have had an opportunity to see first-hand the effectiveness of PY1’s Safe2live Campaign and the impact it has had on youth. Thanks to the Mobile Puppet Theater my girls and the surrounding community are more aware of the necessity to be safe in their daily lives.

As an entertainer having lost many friends in the music industry due to AIDS at the beginning of the epidemic, I decided to promote AIDS Awareness using music, art and multi-media. In 2004, I founded Protect Yourself 1, Inc. to promote HIV and SDT awareness, education and prevention. Supported by the Board of Officers, the Advisory Board Members, the corporate team and the volunteers; together we forward PY1’s mission. PY1 is a community-based organization operating from Maryland, spreading its urgent message locally and regionally. Also, PY1 is utilizing virtual worlds; Second Life and JokaydiaGRID to network, collaborate and educate globally.

I've had the pleasure of serving as an board advisor for PY-1 for the last couple of years.
During this period I have observed the critical and valuable assistance the PY-1 organization provides to the Maryland community, in providing essential help and education to those in need.
As long
as PY-1 continues to extend itself to servicing the needs of others, I will eagerly offer my available resources in assisting the group in achieving their short and longterm goals.

As a board member for PY1 Inc. I am pleased and excited about the number of outstanding programs we have to offer the community and the world. PY1 continued efforts to participate in the community makes a difference in the fight against AIDS. Protect Yourself 1, Inc.'s partnership with church, government, community and business leaders enables the development of PY1 HEALTHSCAPE as an Event that focuses on HIV/ STD testing, as well as other health issues affecting Inner City community residents.
As a Board Member with this group, my hope is that we will develop grow and have an impact on many Communities both locally and abroad to encourage positive health behavioral changes among all people.
