Learning, Empowerment, Advocacy, Participation in Houston, TX



For our friends in Houston, Texas:

Do you want to develop the skills that will help you make a difference in the lives of the HIV+ community? Apply for Project L.E.A.P. (Learning, Empowerment, Advocacy, Participation).

This FREE semester-long program is the most comprehensive advocacy training program in the nation for HIV positive individuals and is sponsored by the Ryan White Planning Council.

There is a great need, as Harris County accounts for 35% of all HIV/AIDS cases in the state of Texas--over 16,000 Houstonians.

In Project L.E.A.P., you will learn:

-Who needs HIV-related services
-The specific needs of the HIV-community in Houston
-How HIV organizations receive funding
-Who makes the decisions regarding funding
-Where HIV funding originates
-How government decisions affect you and your community
-How YOU can have an impact on these decisions.

The deadline for 2014 is fast approaching; online today!
