Everything you need to implement Y-RISE — NYLC's model for using peer education and service-learning in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Youth peer education is a powerful tool to stem the tide of the AIDS epidemic — nationally and internationally. Developed by service-learning and AIDS experts, NYLC’s Y-RISE curriculum empowers middle and high school-aged youth to learn about HIV/AIDS, educate their peers, and address local and global needs through service-learning.

This DVD and program manual give you everything you need to implement the Y-RISE curriculum in your classroom, after-school program, or community-based organization. The manual covers the basics of service-learning, peer education, and HIV/AIDS; program models; and approaches for involving community partners, including HIV experts. The DVD includes a brief introduction to Y-RISE and Sleep with a Virgin: A Perspective on AIDS — an original theater work that facilitates discussions about the facts, myths, and stigmas surrounding HIV/AIDS. (85 pages. Paperback. DVD. 2007.)
