our mission

PAC’s Community Advocacy and Mentorship Programs (CAMP) strives to provide support for youth who are affected or infected with HIV/AIDS by building a community that fosters love and inspires youth to be their best selves. All of our programs are free of charge.




Mentorships are half-day events for local affected/infected kids where they get to bond with one another, meet role models from the Pediatric AIDS Coalition, have fun, seek support, and be in a safe and accepting environment.

Life Skills Retreat

Life Skills Retreat is a 3-day-long retreat serving high-school-aged youth who are infected/affected by HIV/AIDS. We provide workshops that range from Stress Management to Resume Writing to Understanding HIV. We also create a safe and accepting space that promotes mental health, community, and healing. We hope that this retreat gives youth the tools, support, and skills necessary to reach their full potential.

If you or your child is interested in attending, please fill out the application and send it to pac.family.ucla@gmail.com. Must be between the ages of 15 and 18.
