In June 2023, MOSAIC’s NextGen Squad helped to organize and present during USAID’s Office of HIV and AIDS Implementing Partners’ Call focused on meaningful youth engagement. During the meeting, NextGen Squad members reached more than 200 listeners through The Drive with Sasha, a special podcast episode focused on youth-led activities in HIV prevention programs.

In this episode, NextGen Squad members answer important questions, noting which youth-led activities USAID should invest in and how HIV programs can better involve youth and youth-led organizations in their work. They also discuss the importance of evaluating impact and share thoughts on utilizing social media to reach young people with key messages about HIV prevention.
