Health and Awareness
The Shepherds Tabernacle Church’s Health and Awareness Program will help at-risk youth make good decisions about their health. Young adults face a great-risk of contracting HIV and hepatitis C through drugs, risky self tattooing, and body piercing. Some youth do not have a complete understanding of how HIV and hepatitis C can affect their lives. This program can educate them and is needed. More and more youth are being diagnosed with HIV and hepatitis C in our communities.Our target audience is youth between the ages of 13 and 17.
The activities under this program are:
STAC will host the workshop and help recruit participants, the local health center will provide support and workshop assistance.
The outcome of this program will yield increased knowledge to at-risk youths on how to help prevent the spread of new infections of HIV and hepatitis C. They will also understand what life is like for people infected with HIV/AIDS and hepatitis. This program will promote healthier living for youth and their families within our community. We expect the workshops, PSA announcements and the community plays will promote safe practices around tattoos and body piercing. We also expect that it will provide at-risk youth with much needed information about HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and other health related illnesses.
Other Health Awareness Services will be offered under this program to include:
Potential partners: Community schools and Health Centers.
The church will host the workshops and help recruit participants, the health centers will provide support and workshop assistance. We will work with the schools to target at-risk youth.
