Girls 4 HOPE (Health Opportunities, Prevention, and Education) builds the capacity of community-based organizations to initiate and improve HIV prevention programs for African American and Latina teen girls (13-18 years old) and their parents.


Through the Girls 4 HOPE program, AIDS Alliance works with community-based organizations that serve African American and Latina teen girls who are at high risk for HIV infection. We offer a comprehensive program of training and technical assistance tailored to mutually identified needs and an agreed upon individualized capacity building plan.


GIRLS 4 HOPE services are based on well-researched programs and promising strategies that have been found to help African American and Latina teen girls do the following:

  • develop the knowledge and skills they need to make life-long decisions about their sexual health;

  • avoid behaviors that place them at risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections; and

  • make healthy choices that promote their overall health and well-being.

Through GIRLS 4 HOPE, AIDS Alliance helps community based organizations connect parenting adults with teen girls to build strong, culturally and linguistically youth-centered HIV prevention programs. Girls 4 HOPE services are provided free of charge to eligible community-based organizations. For more information, call or email Maritza Valenzuela at 202-785-3564 x140.
