Empower is an arts based HIV project the trains youth to become HIV peer educators in our   own communities. this project is designed for youth, by youth in ways that are specific to our communities, cultures, and experiences.

you will learn how to use your stories and experience to create and deliver arts-based workshops and resources to your community. you will also have the opportunity to make digital stories that share your experiences of becoming a peer educator. and, better yet: you won’t be doing it alone. every participant will be matched with a youth mentor.
