Educate to Empower: AIDS Vancouver's Training of Trainers Program



June 17, 2011 - In August 2010, AIDS Vancouver's Prevention Education program was awarded a $35,000 grant from MAC AIDS to develop and deliver a new "Educate to Empower" Training of Trainers program. This program is designed to educate participants on social justice issues related to HIV/AIDS. Participants are expected to bring this information back into their communities through the development of support programs and workshops and/or through working and volunteering with local service organizations.

"Educate to Empower" workshops were successfully piloted in March 2011 to a number of recovery centers in and around Vancouver including: New Dawn, Chrysalis Society, Salvation Army, Aurora, PACE and Positive Living Fraser Valley.

Educate to Empower Workshop created by:
Tasha Riley, PhD, Prevention Education Coordinator, AIDS Vancouver.
Andrée Gacoin, MA, UBC PhD Candidate, Educational Studies. Brian Chittock, PhD, Executive Director, AIDS Vancouver.

About AIDS Vancouver
The first AIDS service organization in Canada.
AIDS Vancouver was founded in 1983 as the first AIDS service organization in Canada. The agency was formed in response to an emerging disease that was starting to infect and affect local communities in Vancouver, specifically gay men. From our beginning, AIDS Vancouver evolved with the progression of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This evolution has made our service delivery and program development relevant and innovative today.

While setting standards for excellence in program and service delivery, we work with policy makers to address complex legal, ethical and socioeconomic issues. The principles of Health Promotion, Harm Reduction, Community Based Research, Community Development and Volunteerism guide and direct us.

For the past 25 years, AIDS Vancouver has been at the forefront of community response to the epidemic here in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Over 25 paid staff and 200 volunteers strive to provide a comprehensive and integrated range of health promotion, education, and support services. Mission Statement AIDS Vancouver exists to alleviate individual and collective vulnerability to HIV and AIDS through support, public education and community based research. www.aidsvancouver.org
