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 to provide them with harm-reduction tools. New Choices, a component of Safe Choices, works with girls and women who want to exit sex trafficking and provides them with the skills they need to lead fulfilling lives.
- Face Forward, a program that works with women and men between the ages of 16 and 24 who have current or past involvement in the juvenile justice system, to provide case management, mentoring, GED classes and testing, transportation assistance, job certification, job placement, and much more.
