Leeway Speakers Program
Leeway is engaged in community outreach through a Speaker’s program available to schools, organizations, and community groups to build advocacy, awareness, and prevention in the community. Leeway has created a team of individuals living with HIV/AIDS who give testimony to their experiences. The program is enhanced with expert discussion from a Leeway staff member to dovetail the stories of the Speakers, and informational materials may be available as resources for participants.
People living with HIV/AIDS who speak openly about their status challenge myths and misconceptions and this makes others examine their risks. People living with HIV/AIDS also bring a unique perspective of their experiences and can perform valuable functions as AIDS educators.
For information about bringing the Leeway Speaker’s Program to your organization, business, or school, please contact the Social Services department.
