Prevent and Prevail – Fall 2017!

Prevent and Prevail Fall17 Design 1

Great news! Prevent and Prevail will be continuing with another run in September!

Youth ages 12-17 who are LGBTQ+ or allies meet to discuss sex, STDs, pregnancy, drugs, consent, and more in a safe, welcoming space.

The next run will be on Wednesdays from 4 – 6:30 pm on September 13, 20, 27, and October 4, 11, and 18.

Prevent & Prevail is a program created by youth between the ages of 13 and 16 after learning that the HIV infection rate is highest in the 13-23 age group.  The goal of Prevent & Prevail is to have open discussions in a safe, confidential, fun, and all inclusive environment.  Teen facilitators receive over 20 hours of training before leading a series of information sessions and discussions for their peers.
