Second Cohort

With the extension of our funding through the Elton John AIDS Foundation, we have now recruited our second cohort of 10 Peer Guide Trainees, including 5 HIV-positive transgender women of color and 5 HIV-positive African-American gay and bisexual men, ages 21 to 35. They are in the process of completing their 150 hours of classroom training, which includes presentations by leading local experts and agency representatives. In January 2016, they will begin 10 weeks of mentored internships with local CBOs and ASOs.
