SPEAK OUT stands for “Sharing Personal Experiences And Knowledge: Our Unique Truths”. The SPEAK OUT program uses a wide variety of young speakers that are either infected with HIV or affected by HIV to educate their peers.
The speakers are between the ages of 7 – 17. They share their personal stories about how HIV has changed their life and other important information pertaining to HIV/AIDS.
For many, this will be the first time ever meeting someone who is knowingly HIV-positive. The speakers are matched to the demographics of the students at each school so the audience is best able to relate to the speakers.
The many similarities between the speakers and audience allow for a once-in-a-lifetime educational experience for thousands of students.
