Our workshops for the high school students of Baltimore City College High School were conducted during all Health Class periods during May 2009. The NCBW-has an ongoing HIV/AIDS education and prevention initiative provided community workshops for students in schools, young adults residing in residential facilities and target groups of women and girls.
Baltimore City College is a flagship high school of the Baltimore City Public School System. The workshops provided by the partnership were conducted during health class periods in the month of May 2009. The Coalition of 100 Black Women, BMC members attended these classes with students. During the time period NCBW-BMC members observed class training, assisted with activities and actions, interacted with students and staff and made presentations. One hundred and fifty-seven (157) students committed to the Behavioral Change Participant Agreement. This was a 30-60 day promise to reduce the risk of infection with HIV and other STD’s.
