HIV Alliance’s Education Program provides culturally responsive, scientifically accurate, and nonjudgmental sexual health education for young people at risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The program reaches youth in Lane, Marion, and Douglas Counties and serves a diverse student population. The purpose of this program is to raise awareness of STIs and how they can be prevented in an effort to protect young people from acquiring STIs, reduce stigma, and reduce STI-related health disparities in our state. Goals for this year include: translating and updating the Education Program’s presentations to be culturally relevant to Spanish speaking and Latinx youth, and launching a youth advisory group to give students in the service area an opportunity to give their feedback on what presentations and resources they would like to receive. With the innovative public health work happening in Oregon, Eugene and Salem are wonderful places to explore a future in public health. You will gain experience collaborating with a range of staff working across different departments and engage directly with community partners. The OHA AmeriCorps VISTA Partnership Project is committed to building a diverse workforce to strengthen our work in Oregon communities. We value applicants who can bring lived experience to further OHA’s strategic goal to eliminate health inequities by 2030.
