Title: HIV/AIDS Health Promotion and Education Youth Leadership and Organizational Development Training Institute
Project Period: 9/30/04 - 9/29/07
Project Director: Beth Beck
Target Population:

Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino Adolescent/Young Adults

Health Issues: HIV/AIDS

The goal of the HIV/AIDS Health Promotion and Education Youth Leadership and Organizational Development Training Institute project is to increase the number of African-American and Latino lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth accessing and utilizing community-based HIV prevention services by enhancing the capacity and competence of youth HIV prevention programs. The project offers capacity building and technical assistance to ten nationally recruited, minority youth serving organizations and minority-serving AIDS organizations through its national training institute. The training program includes an analysis of the participating organizations resources, and a two-week training institute, in Washington, D.C., for three-member “training teams” (one adult/two youth) from each participating organization, on strategies and interventions designed to reach “at-risk” youth. Specific training tracks offered depend on the status of the participating organizations youth-based HIV prevention programming activities. Topics in the training tracks cover youth leadership development; program planning, development and enhancement; and intervention-strategy. Training topics include incorporating youth into HIV prevention programming; peer leadership skill development; program planning and development community mobilization; and HIV intervention “training-of-trainers” which instructs program staff and youth leaders on recommended strategies and prevention interventions. Subsequent technical assistance is provided as needed and participating organizations are routinely surveyed to measure progress in problem solving and in the use if HIV prevention techniques for their local youth.
