LIFEbeat mobilizes the music and entertainment industry to empower you to take control of your sexual health, to understand the risks of HIV and other STIs, and to know you're supported regardless of status, gender or sexuality.
LIFEbeat, founded in 1992, is a leading national nonprofit focused on educating America’s youth (13-29) about HIV and STI prevention.
Using the entertainment industry’s resources, LIFEbeat raises awareness of HIV and other STIs at live music events, and via broadcast, digital, social and print platforms. We're on the ground at major tours and festivals talking to concertgoers about safe sex, risks and support services.
LIFEbeat also provides quality of life services and support for people living with HIV/AIDS and their families.
In person and over digital media media, LIFEbeat engages tens of thousands of at-risk youths and community organizers across the country about staying safe and educated.
What's at Stake
One in two sexually active people will contract an STI before they turn 25. This group accounts for more than 50% of the nearly 20 million STIs contracted annually, yet only one in ten will be tested for an STI. They have low rates of condom use, and high rates of substance use and number of sexual partners.
Your involvement -- as a donor, volunteer, partner or individual who's been engaged by LIFEbeat in any way -- directly contributes to reaching at-risk youths with lifesaving prevention resources in communities across North America.
