“Speak Out Zambo” is a monthly forum which tackles social topics with relevance to the youth and other concerned sectors within the community.
With its increasing number of cases within the city the 8th Speak Out Zambo? flourished with the theme - “You Are Sexy When You Know It: Opportunities for Action and Impact to Address HIV/AIDS among Adolescents”, held  May 14, 2015 at Cecille’s Convention Room.
The participants were grouped and asked with the talk cloud — “Why do young people engage in sex?”. The common reasons were 1. Curiosity 2. Peer pressure and 3. Lack of guidance from parents.
On the last part, participants were given a canvass so they can express what their thought is about the drastic increase of HIV/AIDS cases in the city and how can they be of help in the aim of combating HIV cases in Zamboanga City.
