Global Sexual Health Mentors wanted – No experience required, passion essential!

STIMULUS is pleased to announce, an exciting new addition to Autumn 2010’s Global Forum 40. Global Forum 40 will bring together forty young people, from across the Globe to San Patrignano, in Rimini Italy for a week’s forum to engaging in a number of exciting activities, as well as sharing information and knowledge on a number of key sexual health issues, with the main focus being HIV and AIDS.

As the name suggests, the forum brings together 40 Young People from across the world to join this exclusive opportunity to join a unique international youth project. Many of the participants have now been selected through a formalised application process, however due to unforeseen circumstances a small number of places for participants have been made available. As Participant Liaison Coordinator I would now like to take this opportunity to announce that I will now be accepting expressions of interest for anyone who is 16 - 25 and is interested in joining us in Italy next year.

You may be wondering why Italy? Well San Patrignano is a breathtaking organization, which works with young men and women who have serious drug abuse problems, regardless of ideology, social background, or religion. Since 1978, San Patrignano has taken in over 18,000 young people from across the world, offering them a home, healthcare, legal assistance, and the opportunity to study, learn a job, change their lives, and regain their status as full members of society.

Participants will naturally be invited to attend a fully funded trip to Italy late next year where the forum will meet for the first time, but this is just one event in a string of other activities coming up over the next year including candle lit vigils for World Aids Day, Gala dinners and special performances!

So, if you are interested – please send your expression of interest to:,containing no more than 500 words before November 30th, outlining your motivations for joining the forum, any relevant experience you may have and what you hope to get out of the initiative!
