Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Community Education Group, Inc. (CEG) is a not-for-profit organization originally incorporated in Washington, D.C. in 1993 as the National Women and HIV/AIDS Project (NWAP). CEG focuses on the creation and expansion of programs and projects, which address the health, socioeconomic, environmental and systemic challenges facing the African American family. We are dedicated to helping communities hardest hit by HIV/AIDS and other health disparities, and the community-based organizations that serve them. Our motto, "Building stronger communities, one project at a time", illustrates our mission and commitment to capacity building.
CEG's focus is on developing programs and plans which can be replicated elsewhere. CEG has developed innovative educational programs to serve communities hardest hit by HIV/AID. CEG assists communities of color in overcoming cultural and systemic barriers to accessing critical HIV/AIDS information, and have facilitated community-directed processes aimed at building bridges to health, planning/policy, and funding processes.
HIV/AIDS has taught us a great deal. Through this pandemic, HIV disease was linked not only to behavior, but to other socioeconomic, health, and educational issues. Thus, we found the primary need to be for the development of tools, information dissemination, community organizing, and educational methods to get this information to the community. An organized, educated and informed community can actively participate in the processes which impact their lives. We determined one of the most effective methods for reaching the community with the needed source information was two pronged; media and information sources and community organizing. CEG currently teaches and trains organizations in skills for survival in this current funding climate (Capacity Building, Board Development, Grant Research, and Writing) and developing social marketing campaigns (Organizing Focus Groups, Reaching Niche Markets through Outreach). CEG currently provides community-level prevention interventions for persons who are HIV negative/unknown using social networking theory; condom distribution/recruitment of condom distribution sites; HIV CTR; outreach services; group-level prevention interventions for persons who are HIV negative/unknown; individual-level prevention; and mental health and substance abuse referral services.
