Description

A December 2017 What Works in Youth HIV needs assessment revealed recruiting and engaging youth as the #1 challenge to starting or continuing youth HIV prevention programs. If a program struggles with recruitment and engagement it’s difficult to deliver the education and skills youth need to make decisions about their sexual health.

View this webinar to hear a conversation between WWYH Project Director Aisha Moore, Timothy Kordic from the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education, Maranda Ward from Promising Futures, and Lamar Anderson from Sasha Bruce Youthwork as they explore common recruitment and engagement challenges and successful strategies for meeting and engaging youth on their level.
