We can always use your support!"We need your support to buy test kits for youth at risk. Otherwise some will continue to transmit HIV to unsuspecting teen partners, maybe someone you know and love. These tests are sold over-the-counter at drugstores but cost $39 plus tax, a very high price for young people. The tests use oral swabs, not blood and needles, and take only 20 minutes for 99% accurate results. We are the first and only organization in the United States bringing them to older teens because unfortunately, 90% of youth choose not to go to traditional sites like hospitals or clinics with technicians in lab coats and wearing gloves because of the stigma attached. Yet they willingly take part in our public testing among friends and peers. Our approach is innovative, intelligent and pro-active."
We are an all-volunteer 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization distributing information about AIDS to teens locally, nationally, and internationally.
