Community Education Group

Building Stronger Communities - One Project at a Time

Our Programs

From outreach and education work to creating replicable, peer-empowering programs, Community Education strives to build our community from the ground up. And we do so by reaching thousands of individuals each year. Below are brief summaries of our current programs – follow the links or contact us directly to learn more.

Road to AIDS 2012

As the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012) prepares to return to the United States for the first time in 20 years, the Community Education Group and the Urban Coalition for HIV/AIDS Prevention Services are planning a series of community mobilizing events in 15 U.S. cities in the lead up to AIDS 2012. The events will heighten public awareness of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, AIDS 2012 and future changes in health service delivery in America. For more information, click here.

Testing, Linkage to Care (CTR)

Our primary program at CEG is outreach and testing – every day in the community and at our main office. For every individual who tests preliminary positive via our rapid oral test, we immediately strive to link that individual to confirmatory testing and treatment. For more information, click here.

CHAMPS

Our 90 day CHAMPS program gives at-risk individuals valuable skills as community health workers and HIV/AIDS testers, training them to provide valuable health information to members of their own community. Nearly all our outreach staff graduated from this program, continuing to work tirelessly in their communities to stem the tide of the epidemic. Find out more
