Outreach

“Because of all of the support I was given, I was able to leave the gang behind for good. Now I’ve been able to reach out to other young people to share my story and tell them about the dangers of being involved with a gang and also help young women see their worth and know that they can become anything their hearts desire.”

-Kymberli, Peer Educator and future nurse

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.
