Making Proud Choices! is an eight-module (eight hour) curriculum that provides young adolescents with the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to reduce their risk of sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs), HIV, and pregnancy by abstaining from sex or using condoms if they choose to have sex. The goal of Making Proud Choices! is to empower young adolescents to change their behavior in ways that will reduce their risk of an unplanned pregnancy or becoming infected with HIV and other STDs.

¡Cuídate! (Take Care of Yourself) is a small-group, culturally-based intervention to reduce HIV and other sexual risk behaviors among Latino youth. The intervention consists of six 60-minute modules delivered to small, mixed-gender groups. Through the use of role plays, videos, music, interactive games and hands-on practice, ¡Cuídate! helps Latino youth develop HIV knowledge, understand vulnerability to HIV infection, identify attitudes and beliefs about HIV and safe sex, and increase self-efficacy and skills for correct condom use, negotiating abstinence, and negotiating safer sex practices. The intervention curriculum is available in both English and Spanish. Learn more about this intervention.
VOICES/VOCES is a one-hour, single-session, video-based intervention designed to increase condom use among heterosexual African-American and Latino men and women. Participants, grouped by gender and ethnicity, view a video in English or Spanish on HIV-risk behaviors and condom negotiation, take part in a facilitated discussion on barriers to and negotiation of condom use, and receive samples of condoms.
