Protect Yourself 1, Inc. [ PY1 ] is currently working with youths in the Baltimore City Schools system this year and next due to a generous grant from the Annie Casey Foundation...I had a chance to volunteer my services at their booth at the recent Global Aids Conference in Washington DC [ July 2012 ].I am very familiar with the organizations and the work they do in this region. What I witness was the amazing reactions that PY1 was recieving from men and women from all over the world. Everyone from Africa and Europe to the Caribbean and Latin America were amazed at the accomplishments of the organization andit reaches out to a diverse populations. People [ Gayand straight ] recognized how important and valuable that these type of programs reach young kids before they reach High school. Many testify how alot of kids in their country are bullied or cast out by their friends what for the unwanted pregnancy to STD's and HIV. They talk about the stigma is overwhelming. People all acknowledge that PY1 is a program that can reached out to their youth and I was recieving orders and inquiries on how they can bring PY1 to their village , tribes , provinces, urban cities, and countries. They view PY1 as a 5 "star" organizationwith a program as a 5 "star" Safe Sex educational program. My experiences was of true amazement. I went away that evening totally blown away as to how many people of all ages and skin colors were affected by the mission and the dedicated staff of PY1. My experience as a professional in this field and a volunteer that week far PY1 far exceeded my expectation.
