Healthy Oakland Teens

NOTE: The HOT Project ended in 1995. For a list of more recent, effective school-based sexuality/HIV education programs, please see:

The Healthy Oakland Teens Project (HOT) began in the fall of 1992 at an urban, ethnically diverse junior high school. The project’s goal is to reduce adolescents’ risk for HIV infection by using peer role models to advocate for responsible decision making, healthy values and norms, and improved communication skills. (posted 4/98)
