NAPWA is accepting applications for the Bayard Rustin Project HIV Testing Advocate Training.
This training will give participants the tools to effectively tell their stories of contracting and living with HIV as same-gender-loving men. By "effective", we mean that in the telling of these men's stories, other Black gay and bisexual men will be encouraged to take the HIV test and access the services they need.
NAPWA is looking for openly gay or bisexual, African American men from DC/Maryland/Virginia, living with HIV, who are willing and able to talk publicly and openly about their lives, specifically what made them vulnerable to HIV infection, and how they are able to take care of themselves today.
Because of the nature of the training (with exercises and activities in the evening), all participants are required to remain onsite at the conference center throughout the duration of the training. NAPWA will cover the cost of your room and board for the training.
All participants who successfully complete the training will receive a stipend. Those participants will then become eligible for the opportunity to become HIV Testing Advocates with the Bayard Rustin Project.
The training will be held from Wednesday, October 17th at 9:00am until Friday, October 19th, at 5:00pm, at the National 4-H Conference Center, 7100 Connecticut Avenue, in Chevy Chase, MD.
Attached please find the HTA Job Description and Application. Those who are interested in the Project and Training should complete and send the application to me no later than Tuesday, October 2nd.
