Starting on September 19, ASC is offering a new cycle of its Peer Recovery Education Program (PREP), an intensive, 10-week training for men and women who are affected by HIV/AIDS and in recovery from drug or alcohol use.
PREP participants learn how to educate at-risk communities with culturally relevant information on HIV risk reduction and health promotion. The program empowers participants to sustain long-term recovery while developing a marketable set of skills. After completing PREP, participants become ASC Peer Interns, assisting with community outreach, educational presentations, translation, and many other activities.
For more information about the upcoming PREP training cycle, or to receive an application to attend the training, please contact Lurenda Cray, Senior Program Coordinator, at 212-645-0875, extension 344 or at Lurenda@ascnyc.org.
