Educating Teens about HIV/AIDS, Inc.
Educating Teens about HIV/AIDS (ETAH) is a 501 (c) (3) organization designed to educate pre-teens, teenagers, and young adults about the deadly impact of the HIV virus and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) through collaboration with local communities. It also serves to collaborate with the business community and to encourage schools, houses of worship, and community groups to plan programs to educate teens about HIV/AIDS during the month of March and throughout the year.
Educating Teens about HIV/AIDS, Inc. is grounded in the philosophy that when we educate our teens we are securing a healthy future. Today’s teens are tomorrow’s workforce, leaders, and decision makers. The investment in teenagers today is an investment in our quality of life for the future. Acknowledging that risky behaviors do not happen in isolation, ETAH uses a comprehensive approach that addresses self-esteem, peer pressure, alcohol and drug use, abusive relationships, and other issues that affect youth. ETAH takes into consideration the social and cultural experiences of youth. ETAH provides prevention education, while empowering youth to make informed decisions about their health and well-being so that they can protect themselves and maintain a healthy life style.
