SMASH Educates Students
Our teen advocacy group Student Movement Against Stigma and Hate (SMASH) is comprised of local high school students who are passionate about educating their peers on HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness.
The group works to reduce ignorance, promote acceptance, and stress the importance of communication between teens and the important people in their lives. After attending training session(s) during the fall semester, members present the information they learn to local schools and community groups. In the spring, SMASH hosts a fashion show for area high school and college students in recognition of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. In the winter, the group hosts a summit for high school students.
