The Life Group LA would like to Thank Christopher Street West for its Generous and Benevolent Strategic Outreach Partnership for Pride Season!! It is an Honor to be supported by such a prestigious organization!
The POZ Life Weekend Seminar is a place where compassion, education, community and love is offered unconditionally. It's a place HIV+ men, women, youths and family members can come be themselves, feel comforted and support in their effort to learn how to either live a long healthy productive POZitive lifestyle, or help someone they know and love overcome the fears associated with being HIV+.
Our diverse group of Presenters, Volunteers and Staff can effectively reach out and relate to the specific issues that can concern and equally diverse group of men, women, people of color, gay men and heterosexual HIV individuals. Age is not relevant in most cases, however each community and culture has specific needs for support, and each is addressed in breakout or concurrent sessions according to the specific demographic majority of the enrolled number of participants.
When enrolling, you'll be asked what your specific concerns might be, or what you hope to achieve by participating in the seminar. We strive to find qualified presenters to address these specific issues, or ask one of the already scheduled qualified presenters to be sure and touch on that topic to insure all questions are answered.
Our workshops are extremely interactive. Our Presenters always welcome your questions and comments. You see…presenters and volunteers are not the only ones sharing and teaching. The magic occurs when participants also reach out and help one another with helpful information, suggestions, support and tips.
The Life Group LA is also available to travel nationwide to produce the "POZ Life Weekend Seminar" for your organization, in your town, in either Spanish or English. For inquiries and the logistics' of hosting a "POZ Life Weekend Seminar" contact
