Project Y-ChatNow is a new FREE substance use, HIV/AIDS, and hepatitis prevention program for minority youth and young adults ages 13 – 24 in St. Louis City and County. The program combines education and awareness workshops with social marketing campaigns to promote the spread of positive prevention messages in minority communities.
Project Y-ChatNow participants engage in fun-filled educational prevention workshops utilizing evidence based curricula during the first half of the program. During the second portion, the youth and young adults team up to create unique social marketing campaigns (e.g., flyer, poster, PSA, social media content, video) based on what they learn in order to help share facts, dispel myths, and bring about community awareness throughout St. Louis neighborhoods.
