Ambassador Training

Ambassador is a dynamic volunteer training program for people who enjoy working with other in communication-intensive settings.

Ambassador training is ideal for, but certainly not limited to, people who have already completed Basics and Beyond the Basics trainings.

Ambassador aims to support you as you develop skills geared toward translating your knowledge of HIV/AIDS into practice by offering information, tips and guidance that will help you as you engage in various types of community outreach activities.

Beyond the Basics

Beyond the Basics is a great program for volunteers who have completed Basics training and who want to learn about HIV/AIDS and related issues in more depth. 

Beyond the Basics is a foundation for Ambassador training and a good training opportunity for anyone who would like to volunteer in community settings. 

Beyond the Basics will equip you with information to help you answer questions during outreach, raise community awareness about HIV/AIDS and related issues, and contribute to the elimination of stigma and discrimination.

Women's Support Group

The women’s group at RHAC is a monthly social group designed specifically for women living with HIV. The group addresses some of the issues that come with social isolation by providing a safe, non-judgemental and friendly environment to women where they can share their stories, successes and struggles as women living with the virus. The group is coordinated and facilitated by Miriam Rivera and Keri Wheatley - both staff members of Regional HIV/ AIDS Connection.

Celebrating Women on International Women's Day

For 30 years HIV/AIDS has been a local concern as well as an international epidemic. Since the early years, many women in our community have dedicated their professional lives to working with people living with, affected by and at risk for HIV. On International Women's Day, we are taking a moment to honour six women who have made significant contributions locally to the HIV movement.
