Timothy Kordic has been involved with comprehensive sexual health and HIV prevention-education for the past eight years. He started his career working in after-school programs for youth and was a teacher in the Los Angeles secondary schools system for almost a decade. Over these years, Mr. Kordic assumed various leadership roles that led to his involvement with several prevention grants. Later, he was recruited into the Los Angeles Unified School District's (LAUSD) health education programs, contributing to many prevention activities through the district's Student Health and Human Services. Mr. Kordic's earlier projects revolved around violence and substance abuse prevention, including leading District-wide tobacco use prevention education. He has since worked on several awareness campaigns, taking on themes like healthy relationships and sexual violence.
Mr. Kordic currently serves as Project Manager for the LAUSD HIV/AIDS Prevention Unit. Funding supports mandates around HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, and teen pregnancy prevention. Due to the large area that Los Angeles covers, effective strategies to address specific sub-populations have been crucial. Mr. Kordic's current projects implement approaches specific to LGBTQ youth, including evidence-based interventions for minority males.
