    • The HOPE Project

    • What is the HOPE Project?
      Genesee HOPE is the core project of the PRC/MI for 2009-2014. YOUR Center is the lead community organization partner.
      HOPE aims to reduce the disparities of high HIV/STD rates among African-Americans young adults in Flint and Genesee County.
      Participants in the HOPE Project attend a HOPE Party and are then invited to connect with HOPE online.

    • What’s aHOPE Party?
      HOPE Parties are informal gatherings at someone's home where you can get together with a few of your friends and learn about healthy sexuality in a safe and comfortable environment.
      HOPE Parties are a fun and educational way to get factual information about HIV and sexually transmitted diseases, which are becoming more common throughout African-American communities in Flint, Michigan, and many other cities around the world.
      During a HOPE party, a certified sexual health educator, along with a party host,  will lead a discussion among friends about the behaviors that people engage in that put them at risk for becoming infected with HIV, called “risk behaviors”.
