12  It’s not clear how this segment of the class was related to the stated purpose of the Nashville Cares presentation.  Its description of the Survivor Club training states: “Nashville CARES provides Survivor Club© (SC) education certification programming for local area teenagers who hope to reduce the spread of HIV among their families, friends and peers. They do this through one on one, group and media programming addressing behavioral change determinants which they learn through SC certification. Among the skills they learn are: HIV knowledge, attitude, beliefs and behaviors that put themselves and others at risk for HIV infection and how to impact them; one on one educational skills; group presentation skills; public health intervention documentation; HIV counseling and testing skills; program organization and development; media development; community mobilization; life skills regarding values, safer sex, and decision making.”
