Adolescent Initiative

The Mpowerment Project

Meeting new people

The Mpowerment Project uses fun and entertaining social events, programs and activities to make it possible for young males who have sex with males (YMSM, ages 12 to 24) to get together and meet new people.

Staying safe

Through these events we incorporate positive messages to empower YMSM to have safer sex as a way to help prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections. This is accomplished by educating YMSM in regards to sexual health, teaching safer sex protection methods, and instructing on how to communicate with partners and friends about safer sex.
