Getting the Low Down on Wellness (GLOW) is a project funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Minority Health Partnership. The objective of this 5-year project is to address Substance Use Abuse, Viral Hepatitis and HIV on APIs (Asian, Pacific, and Islanders) youths and young adults from ages 18 to 24 years old.
In partnership with Asian Health Services, we have moved now onto the phase to start recruiting young adults to be part of this amazing project. We are looking to train youth and to become Youth Lay Health Workers that can present an hour workshop/presentation to peers and friends, classmates. The presentation is about having an honest conversation on how substance use, Hepatitis, and HIV can affect young APIs’ life, and teach them to make better-informed decisions about these health topics.
Each trainer will get a $250 gift card after the completion of the program for their participation as an incentive for their participation and a $10 dollars gift card for the participants who attend the presentation.
Each trainer is required to attend a 1.5 hour training session to learn how to present the GLOW workshop. Additional 3.5 hours will be spent on practice and outreach for participants.
Each trainer is required to present this curriculum to at least 10 other youths (18-24 yr olds) in Santa Clara County.
Age and demographics:
Youths and young adults ages 18 to 24 years.
Preferred Asian, Pacific, and Islanders identified youths and young adults, but not limited to other races/or ethnicity.
Lastly, there is a pre and post-survey that participants are required to complete. This task will be completed in collaboration with one of the Program Specialists from the HOPE Program.
