Peer 2 Peer Education / Basic HIV and Gender Facilitation short course
Be part of no new HIV infections on campus.
Have you heard friends and fellow students talking about HIV and gender issues on campus without having their facts straight?
Does your residence / society / department reflect social awareness leadership around HIV and gender?
Here is the ideal opportunity for you to become part of a fun training programme enabling you to communicate the true facts and become involved in the community – The Basic HIV and Gender Facilitation short course. The goals behind this training are that students act as an informal source of information on HIV/Aids on campus, and any other circles of influence they operate in. It also aims to influence unsupportive attitudes and promote responsible behaviour. In essence, empowering students to serve as a support structure for students in our community.
Students who pass the course can then take part in various community interaction projects in and around campus. These include: mass HIV testing campaigns, marketing local HIV testing services, condom distribution, a project exploring student attitudes regarding gender, race, HIV and sexual orientation, and projects partnering with various NGO’s, such as Legacy, Vision V, Vision K, !Khwa ttu San Cultural Centre and @heart.
This training is for registered Stellenbosch University students only. Students from the Health Science Faculty are especially encouraged to apply.
Closing dates for applications: 10 April 2012
The training will take place over two weekends: 13~14 April and 20~21 April 2012.
Up to 70 students can be accomodated this semester. All training and related material and a certificate of competence will be supplied free of charge – provided that you make a full commitment to the programme and pass the evaluation. The Basic HIV and Gender Facilitation short course will be offered twice annually and interested students from a variety of settings are encouraged to apply. We especially encourage male students to apply.
