“CHLP and BOOM!Health’s Young Men’s Group to Kick Off Youth Advocacy Corps Series in the South Bronx”

By Adrian Guzman

The Center for HIV Law and Policy (CHLP) and the young men’s group at BOOM!Health will kick off a Youth Advocacy Corps series this evening to develop a series of training sessions on sexual health advocacy for youth in state custody. The series will include training sessions, workshops, and guest speakers to help youth participants develop an advocacy campaign culminating in meetings with the NYC Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) to ensure that young people in foster care have access to comprehensive, LGBTQ-inclusive sexual and reproductive health care.

The young men’s group is one of several youth outreach programs at BOOM!Health, including Go Girl! which is also participating in Youth Advocacy Corps programming..

Our first session is tonight, Monday, June 23, 2014 at 4pm at BOOM!Health’s Prevention Center at 953 Southern Blvd., 2nd floor, in the Bronx (6 train to Hunts Point Ave.; 2 train to Simpson St.). For more information, contact Adrian Guzman at 212-430-6733 or aguzman@hivlawandpolicy.org
