Special Invitation to a WAIT workshop in the last week of August: Use arts to teach HIV prevention
Young people, from the age of 13 years up, are invited to learn how to start WAIT teams in your local area through a training being held in Austria in August.
WAIT is an AIDS prevention organization that uses performing arts to teach, and promotes abstinence and faithful life relationship as the best ways to prevent HIV transmission. (Check www.waitteam.org or www.austria.waitteam.org for videos, reports and any further faqs). WAIT involves youth and parents working together to reach the larger society. For this reason, parent training will be incorporated into the WAIT training seminar, and parents are urgently requested to attend for all or part of the week long events.
The workshop will include intensive scientific education on HIV, as well as skill-building in music, dance, theater and other arts. It will teach the internal relationship skills of WAIT, and WAIT's methods of co-ownership and consensus decision making. WAIT's method of fundraising - including performing and sharing AIDS information -- will also be learned and practiced.
Most importantly, participants will perform together at several events at local camps, churches, schools or other venues.
WAIT is open to youth and families from about 12 to 25 years in all schooling or work situations.
WAIT members must practice a non-dating lifestyle, and most of all, be people of compassion who really care about saving lives. In addition, every WAIT member is committing to a high standard of leadership and public service.
This seminar is designed to help you start WAIT teams and carry out WAIT activities.
