CDC Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) Survive Outside

ETR provided national capacity-building assistance for staff in alternative schools, homeless youth organizations and juvenile justice to implement evidence-based and evidence-informed HIV/STD prevention and sexual health promotion practices and policies. The project worked at the policy level by assisting sites in educating stakeholders and providing training to staff who work directly with youth, and also facilitated linkages between youth and sexual health services, particularly youth-friendly HIV/STD testing. The project reached nearly 20,000 high-risk youth in hundreds of juvenile justice facilities and alternative schools from 25 states, and trained staff from 106 agencies who then conducted training events for community stakeholders.
