Media Advisory - African and Caribbean youth trainers bring Kicking AIDS Out to Toronto
  
Toronto Public Health, along with Schools Without Borders, Kicking AIDS Out, and Concrete Hoops, invites members of the media to attend an open house showcasing Court to Community (C2C), a unique program being held this week. C2C is based on the Kicking AIDS Out (KAO) concept, which has been successfully applied in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean and is now being brought to Toronto through an innovative partnership.

C2C brought dynamic trainers from East Africa and the Caribbean to Toronto to introduce Kicking AIDS Out to young people in Toronto. KAO integrates sport, physical activity, life skills and sexual health promotion using a peer education model. Through active discussion, games and activities, participants in the program develop leadership skills, global perspectives, and learn the tools to promote this approach in their own communities.

Date: Friday, March 14
Time: 1 to 2:30 p.m.
Location: St. Francis Assissi School, 80 Clinton St. (just north of College St.)

Attention editors: The African and Caribbean facilitators are available to meet with members of the media to discuss this program and the work they do in their home countries. See biographies of the facilitators.
