AFG’s Outreach Program helps teens and women engaged in high-risk activities, such as street-based prostitution, drug use, and gang involvement, to understand the risks of such activities and transition to safe choices and healthy lives.
Outreach’s programs include:
- Peer Education, a youth leadership program that trains at-risk youth to reach out to other at-risk youth in the community. The teams focus on topics such as healthy relationships, HIV, homelessness, internet bullying, and making positive choices.
- Safe Choices Project, a program that reaches out to girls and women involved in sex work, and those who are victims of sex trafficking, to provide them with harm-reduction tools. New Choices, a component of Safe Choices, works with girls and women who want to exit sex work and provides them with the skills they need to lead fulfilling lives.
