Community Outreach

Community Outreach




Learning in and out of the classroom makes life fun;
teamwork on and off the field makes life easier.








Outside of school, members of the community also take advantage of the dynamic ImprovED programs. Facilitated in conjunction with TRIAD-­trained local Medical Educators, these Community Outreach partnerships enable groups to engage in active learning.
Community Based Organizations (CBOs) such as sports teams, farm workers,
corporate-­sponsored family groups, church groups, extra-­curricular
school clubs, and countless others take advantage of the
custom-­tailored, eight-­week ImprovED workshops. TRIAD's
Community Outreach curriculum blends program-­
appropriate lessons that teach the fundamentals of team-­building,
conflict resolution, sportsmanship, and skill mastery with priceless
lessons about how to prevent HIV and how to live with the harsh
reality of the pandemic.

Not only do we work to educate youth and adult participants about
how to prevent contracting HIV and other STIs, but we work to de-­
stigmatize those who live with HIV/AIDS. TRIAD-­trained Medical
Educators work with every group to supplement the weekly
ImprovED sessions and facilitate ongoing discussion. The dynamic
lessons engage these active youth in role-­playing activities.

By collaborating with CBOs, TRIAD is able to focus its resources on
addressing the specific needs of its participants. All CBO
executives, coaches, and players over the age of 15 are strongly
encouraged to be tested for HIV-not only at the end of the eight-­
week workshop, but every three months. Of course, HIV status is
not a factor in participation. But by encouraging testing as a
condition of participation, the importance of knowing one's status
is reinforced. Equipped with information from their health
education and their testing, CBO staff and participants can make
well-­informed decisions and lead healthier lives.
