Welcome to ETR’s Focus on Youth with ImPACT’s Website!

Focus on Youth with ImPACT (FOY) is a community-based program that gives youth the skills and knowledge they need to protect themselves from HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).  The intervention, founded on the Protection Motivation Theory, emphasizes decision-making, goal and value setting, communication, negotiation, and healthy relationships. Through the use of fun, interactive activities such as games, role plays, youth developed stories, and discussions, their prevention, knowledge and skills are developed in culturally relevant ways. As an adapted Effective Behavioral Intervention (DEBI), Focus on Youth targets African American youth 12 to 15 years of age and their parents in non-school settings.
