Youth and volunteerism- Not every kid dares 
The rain hardly stops in Vanuatu. It’s pouring as usual when Jayleen sets out on her daily walk among thatched villages to talk to the local Ni-Van youth face-to-face about HIV and AIDS. She is a Peer Educator who volunteers her time and energy to fight the roots of the disease: ignorance.

Volunteering is perfect for tapping into the idealism and drive of young people, and gives them a real space for participating in community development. This year, 2011, not only marks the International Year of Youth but also the tenth anniversary of the International Year of Volunteers. It’s a fantastic opportunity to put words into action and make the potential of youth a reality.
