We are an all volunteer run non-profit organization aimed at disseminating information to teens about HIV/AIDS. Former Harvard lecturer Dr. John Chittick first set up an educational website for teens in 1994, and formally incorporated TeenAIDS in 1997. TeenAIDS-PeerCorps is dedicated to education youth in Hampton Roads, Virginia and around the world about their HIV/AIDS risk, how to prevent transmission, their rights to get tested, and how to spread the word among their peer group to save lives.
Since the advent of AIDS, millions have been infected by HIV and have died. No vaccine or cure exists. Currently, sexually active teens are at greatest risk when they choose unwisely to have unprotected sexual intercourse.Dr. John first met youth living with AIDS in the 1980s and their hopeless situation struck his conscience. After much thought, he left behind his home, family and business in 1998 to embark on a humanitarian mission to save young lives. These became the first Global AIDS Walks by a trained expert to educate vulnerable teens, sharing best practices between cultures and regions.Our goal is to empower a growing worldwide cadre of volunteer PeerCorps youth to spread the life-saving message to their young friends and neighbors. Because traditional prevention programs have lost their efficacy as evidenced by rising numbers of HIV-positive youth, a dramatic campaign is needed to enlist adolescents’ proactive support for this most serious problem facing their generation and that of their future babies. Recently, with the advent of over the counter sale of home HIV test kits in the United States in 2012, TA-PC has introduced an innovative prevention technique: the “live” public testing of youth among peers.
