Project K.I.S.S is an HIV prevention program for young people ages 13-24.
Our goal is to provide youth with a safe and non-judgmental HIV/AIDS testing experience. Our services are free and accessible to all youth ages 13-24 regardless of class, race, sex/gender, sexual orientation, and ability to pay.
In addition to HIV testing and counseling, we also conduct health education workshops, group sessions, community outreach events, and off-site testing at locations throughout New York City.
Located at the Pediatrics Center for Special Studies (Baker 23) at Weil Cornell-New York Presbyterian Hospital,we have a fairly small staff that is fun and youth-friendly. In fact, many members of the K.I.S.S staff are young artists, college students, or recent college graduates trained to educate other young people about the process and outcomes of HIV testing, care, and prevention.
The bottom line? Through health education and prevention planning we provide the information and tools YOU need to maintain your health and well-being and to create REAL change for yourself and your community.
Be in charge. Be in control.
Know your status. Inform your partners. Stay Safe.
