Some ways The NAMES Project uses the Quilt to Help Stop AIDS

High School Quilt

Interfaith Quilt

Community-based

The National High School Quilt Program began in 1995 to confront the alarming rise in HIV infections among the country's youth. 

Schools from coast to coast receive sections of the AIDS Memorial Quilt and specially developed HIV prevention materials as part of the classroom curriculum on HIV. 

These Quilt displays are powerful focal points for schools' AIDS awareness activities - allowing students and teachers to discuss AIDS in a way the community, parents, students and teachers decide.

The National Interfaith Quilt Program is designed to bring people of different religions together throughout the country who are working to ends AIDS.

The Interfaith Program provides a special opportunity to encourage awareness, education and spiritual reflection on issues relating to HIV and AIDS in a way determined by the members of the faith community hosting the Quilt.

Community-based and academic Display Programs are designed as large, public displays of the AIDS Memorial Quilt in local communities.

Open to the public and attended by thousands, these displays generate widespread AIDS awareness and enhance local HIV prevention efforts. 

In addition to illuminating some of the stories behind lives lost to AIDS, these displays have educated entire communities about HIV and AIDS and have generated over $1.7 million for local AIDS service organizations.
