Abstract

The purpose of the project is to increase the number of at-risk minority youth participating in HIV/AIDS prevention, education, and testing services. In El Paso, Texas, racial/ethnic minorities and youth are disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS. The target population is impoverished and underserved youth, Hispanic and African-American youth, ages 13 to 24, who are at high risk for HIV infection. The program will recruit, hire, and train five minority Youth Peer Educators who will work as a team with Outreach Workers to reach high risk minority youth. Together, they will implement a Street Smart HIV-prevention-education curriculum, refer youth to HIV testing and community resources, and follow up with participants after graduation. They will also send safety messages using technology systems. The program will also connect the youth with community health resources and refer participants to HIV testing and counseling. The program expects to achieve an increase of knowledge and skills about HIV prevention, a decrease of prevalence of risky behaviors and the formation of an advisory committee of partner agencies. The program will track and monitor such performance measures as:

  • The number of outreach services to high-risk individuals,
  • The number of prevention/brief interventions oriented toward HIV/AIDS/STD reduction and
  • The strength of services to participating individuals.
The evaluation will focus on determining to what degree the intervention produces the positive outcomes for the target population based on the change from baseline to completion of program. The evaluation will also assess if the cognition building from the program impacted the characteristics in a positive or negative manner. The program will use the Multidimensional Adolescent Assessment scale, the Discretionary Service Client Level GPRA tool, the CDC Behavioral Risk Questionnaire, the Walymr Instruments and the client satisfaction inventory for evaluation. These quantitative outcome measures will be collected at several intervals to compare current performance against past performance.

OMH objective(s) toward which the project's results most contribute:

  • Increased awareness, education, and outreach to address racial/ethnic minority health and health disparities problems
  • Improved access to, and appropriate utilization of, health and other community-based services and systems through user-centered design for racial/ethnic minorities (e.g., health IT, culturally/ linguistically appropriate services, service provider education/ training, workforce diversity)
