The YFC School HIV/AIDS program is an initiative which aims to reduce the incidence of HIV?AIDS through increased abstinence of youth aged 7-19 years. This is achieved through an empowering program resulting in skills and knowledge that promote self sufficiency and confidence so youth can make protective and healthy sexual choices.

 

YFC Mpumalanga initiated its Peer Education programme in 2003, and has impacted 52 schools to date. Peer education in schools typically involves values based training and supporting members of a given group to affect sustained behaviour change amongst their peers and school communities. Peer educators are often described as “information providers, referral agents and counsellors” and as being “effective in promoting skills, creating a positive social norm and providing healthy lifestyle alternatives”.

 

Comprehensive programs such as “GOLD” incorporate key role players from all levels of a community to bring about a positive school environment, in partnership with HOPE HIV through with the Generation Of Leaders Discovered (GOLD) and Pepfar and CDC, using their ACTIVE Youth Programs, we can continue to employ the youth.
