Upcoming Programming


Be Proud! Be Responsible! Workshops

The Be Proud! Be Responsible! program (BPBR) gives teens the information, skills, and confidence to reduce their risk of HIV. It empowers young people to change their behaviors and lower their risks by abstaining from sex or by using barriers if they choose to have sex. BPBR uses interactive activities such as videos, games, roleplaying, skill building, and small group discussions to engage youth and make learning fun.

Project AIM Workshops

Check back for upcoming dates.

The Project AIM program strives to get youth excited about their futures and motivates youth to reduce risky behavior. It helps youth to identify their goals for a future successful adulthood and encourages youth to consider how their own behaviors might promote or impede the development of their future self-identities. Project AIM encourages discussions about life goals and risks as barriers to achieving these goals.

Project STIQ Vision

Project STIQ partners with schools and community-based organizations in North Corona, East Elmhurst, and Jackson Heights to deliver programming for youth, families, and professionals within Queens Community District 3.

Project STIQ utilizes evidence-based programs to provide youth ages 11-17 with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed, independent, and responsible choices so they can live healthy and safe lives.

Our Programs

Our sexuality educators deliver free, evidence-based programming for middle- and high school-aged youth that promotes healthy behaviors, fosters decision-making skills, and offers age-appropriate sexual reproductive health information. Project STIQ also offers workshops for parents, caring adults, and community stakeholders who want to learn more about communicating effectively with young people about their sexual and reproductive health.

Youth Advisory Board

Our Youth Advisory Board is comprised of teens aged 13-17 living or going to school in Jackson Heights, East Elmhurst, and North Corona. They provide valuable insight on programming, community trends, and youth engagement.

During their year-long membership on the board, YAB members gain leadership skills, training in sexual and reproductive health, and experience advocating for reproductive rights and social justice issues impacting their communities. Also, for their participation, youth advisory board members will receive a $50 stipend per session.

Are you a parent or caring adult who wants to learn more about talking with teens about their sexual reproductive health?
