Meeting Description:

The Center for Strengthening Youth Prevention Paradigms (SYPP Center) invites you to participate in a webinar on community mobilization with recent graduates of the African American University (AAHU) of Black AIDS Institute. This talk will showcase youth-related projects that were developed by AAHU fellows in Washington, DC; New Jersey; and Columbus, OH.  

This webinar is part of the “Third Thursdays Webinar Series,” which is designed for HIV prevention providers serving youth, particularly young gay men and transgender youth of color.

After this webinar, you will be able to:


  1. Identify the importance of HIV prevention strategies that focus on Black youth, in particular community mobilization
  2. Describe the Black AIDS Institute's approach to HIV prevention via the African American HIV University (AAHU)
  3. Highlight youth-specific community mobilization efforts of AAHU Fellows


Housed at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the SYPP Center provides capacity building assistance (CBA) services to communities seeking to prevent HIV/AIDS among youth, with an emphasis on young gay men and transgender youth of color.  The SYPP Center offers a framework for communities to create sustainable structural changes and build healthy community coalitions that respond to local needs.
