This HIV/AIDS prevention curriculum was developed by Grassroot Soccer (GRS) in partnership with several leading health organisations. GRS seeks to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS by using role models and peer educators to teach youth about developing life skills and making healthy decisions. Through a series of activities, youth are provided with the opportunity to explore issues related to HIV/AIDS and gain the skills necessary to lead healthy lives. These skills include critical thinking, communication, self-esteem, and decision-making, among others. This curriculum and sport-based teaching model was developed in 2003 and aims to build resiliency. It outlines six training sessions that focus on helping young people recognise and practice their resiliency skills. By fostering and developing these strengths, youth will respond appropriately in a stressful situation, and therefore avoid HIV infection and live a healthy life.
