BECOMING A RESPONSIBLE TEEN (BART)

Becoming a Responsible Teen (BART) is a community-based HIV/AIDS prevention program targeting teens. Participants learn safer sex skills, how to reduce risky sexual behaviors, and ways to act on their decisions. The communication and prevention skills learned in BART also help students avoid unintended pregnancy.

BART was originally designed as an HIV/AIDS risk-reduction program for African-American teens. As a whole, the HIV/AIDS information and skills learned through BART are appropriate for all adolescents. The program takes place in non-school settings. Through group discussions, role playing, demonstrations, culturally appropriate videos, and first-hand interactions with persons living with HIV from the participants’ community, participants learn essential information about HIV/AIDS, ways to handle social and sexual pressures, and how to communicate with potential sexual partners, including refusal, negotiation, and condom use skills.

We are unable to respond to emergency needs. If you have a medical emergency, please call 911 immediately.

* The clinic at the Community Health and Wellness Center earned Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike (FQHC LAL) designation on 8/1/2019.
