RAP (Respect Awareness Prevention)

BASIC NWFL, Inc. has been funded by GILEAD to positively impact Bay and the surrounding five counties with a new educational intervention. The RAP Project / SISTA RAP is an integrated HIV/ Substance Abuse prevention program that will target African American and other ethnic minorities young adults from ages 18 to 24 and African American women age 25 and up . Our goal is to educate, empower, and equip them with the appropriate skills needed to make healthy life choices.

The program consists of three fun-filled educational sessions that include numerous activities that encourage interaction among the participants. Wonderful incentives will be provided for participants for each session they attend.

Along with educating and empowering young adults and women, RAP/ SISTA RAP strives to positively impact Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, and Washington counties by encouraging the community to get tested. Knowledge is power, and we plan to provide educational presentations in the community for local businesses, social service agencies, religious organizations, etc. We will also provide educational materials at community health fairs and exhibits.
