Our Come Out curriculum provides age and developmentally appropriate lessons to help children and adolescents understand the nature of HIV/AIDS.
Come Out is an educational HIV/AIDS outreach initiative targeting schools, faith and community-based organizations through a structured curriculum that includes reconstructing and performing “Come Out” choreographed by Frenchy Haynes. Come Out is aligned with the NYC Dept. of Education’s Office of School Wellness Program HIV/AIDS curriculum, which provides age and developmentally appropriate lessons to help children and adolescents understand the nature of HIV/AIDS, methods of transmission and prevention, and ways to support friends or loved ones who may be living withHIV/AIDS. Lessons use strategies that reinforce the importance of communicating with parents/guardians, teachers, and other caring and appropriate adults in their lives. Interactive activities foster communication skills, assertiveness, planning and goal setting, decision-making, and setting limits.
Moving Education gave Apalachicola’s pre-teens and teens an opportunity to experience a wide variety of cultural activities- culinary arts, dance, photography, gardening, and dance- that they rarely seen in a rural community. Thank you to everyone involved for bring this extraordinary gift to our community!
The Moving Education program provided my three children, and many others in Apalachicola, with the opportunity to do things they enjoy and love. They even discovered art forms they never knew they were passionate about. Your program has made a difference and helped families tremendously by providing positive activities for the youth. They have made our family so proud!
