Huckleberry Youth Programs has been a leader in healthcare equity for youth for many decades. Our health educators provide comprehensive, multi-lingual, youth-friendly HIV and health education focused on transmission and prevention of HIV; comprehensive, culturally competent, and LGBTQ-sensitive HIV prevention education to under-resourced youth to solve the lack of prevention education; and prevention services, including education and HIV testing for underserved and at-risk populations to address lack of preventative services.

I'm raising money this year to support Huckleberry's health centers in Marin and San Francisco which offer youth:

1 – Access to primary health services. Many of our youth lack access to preventative services due to a lack of affordable healthcare.

2 – Reproductive and sexual health services including gynecological exams, rapid HIV and STI testing & treatment, pregnancy testing, and birth control

3 – Huckleberry is the only youth clinic in SF providing PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) for youth under 18. PrEP is a daily pill that HIV-negative individuals can take to lower their risk of becoming infected. When taken consistently, PrEP has been shown to reduce the risk of HIV infection by up to 92%

4 – Our San Francisco health ed team conducts an HIV Prevention workshop known as HYPE (HIV Youth Prevention Education) in public schools
