Kicking AIDS Out! courses

Permission requested to use information from www.kickingaidsout.net

The Kicking AIDS Out! network has developed standardized courses which are implemented by all the members. The objective by utilizing this concept is to bring about change - change in behaviour, the reduction of HIV prevalence among young people and create an environment conducive for caring for those infected with or affected by HIV infection.

The Program Development Working Group consists of members from various countries in the network. This group is responsible for developing program materials. They are mandated to develop the following programs:


Kicking AIDS Out Leader Level 2 (LL2)

Kicking AIDS Out Leader Level 1 (LL1)

Kicking AIDS Out Peer Leaders (PL)

A person assesed as competent against this standard (Kicking AIDS Out Level 1) will be able to demonstrate an understanding of HIV and AIDS and abilitity to integrate these competencies in the coaching of peer leaders.

A Peer leader must be able to deliver quality sport programmes and these competencies. The peer leader must be able to create an environment that is conducive for caring for those infected with/affected by HIV.

The Power of peer education

Kicking AIDS Out curriculum builds capacity in youth to help them become stronger leaders and mentors for their peers. It also teaches youth coaches to lead activities that integrate life skills and HIV and AIDS information into sport and physical activity. Youth can then become trainers and assume greater responsibility for supporting and mentoring other Peer Leaders.

Our mission is to empower youth to positively influence their lives and the lives of others by actively enhancing life skills through sport.

The Kicking AIDS Out! network can today offer the following courses:
