Peer Education Programme

The Agents of Change Education (ACEs) peer educators are University of Cape Town (UCT) students from across faculties, who apply and are, selected to take part in the ACEs Programme coordinated by HAICU. They are trained to be able to deliver workshops (on campus and in the student residences) and to educate their peers in intersectional areas of HIV/AIDS, gender-based violence and bystander interventions, stigma related to sexual diversity, patriarchy, heteronormativity, sexism, class, rape, and any new topics that arise as recent research in the social justice field. This initiative was launched in November 2005 as the successor to SHARP, which enjoyed over 11 fruitful years of interventions with UCT students and the wider Western Cape community. Over 25 ACEs have been recruited as peer educators for the 2016 academic year.

If you would like to discuss the potential for ACEs to facilitate a workshop for you, contact us on 021 650 1005/6.
