You can still aplly for the Peer 2 Peer Education programme

Be part of no new HIV infections on campus by 2012

How do I get involved in the fight against HIV and AIDS? Does your residence/society/department reflect social awareness leadership around HIV and gender? The answer is simple: become a Peer 2 Peer Educator.

The HIV office, also known as the Office for Institutional HIV Co-ordination (OIHC), holds Peer Education Training workshops annually.

The training runs over two weekends and covers HIV facts, gender stereotypes, and sexuality issues. The objective is to equip students with knowledge and skills to address issues that contribute to the spread of HIV and AIDS.

When does this take place?
13-15 and 27-29 August 2010, 16:00.

How do I apply?
You can secure your place now by applying online or submitting a printed version of the application forms at our offices at the Industrial Psychology Building room 3006. The forms are accessible at www.sun.ac.za/hiv.  

 Only 60 candidates wp2p_logoill be accommodated.

What is expected of me?
All training materials will be provided and refreshments will be served. Applicants are only required to commit to the two weekends of training; one community outreach; and the annual Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT) campaign that takes place in March.

What are the benefits?
First, the training will provide attendees with a broader knowledge and skills necessary to address HIV related issues on and off campus. Second, students also have an opportunity to use some of the activities they engage in during the training for their course projects. Last, trainees who commit to the programme get a recommendation letter that confirms their involvement at Stellenbosch University and in the surrounding communities.

When do applications close?
The deadline for applications is 7 May 2010.
