Project AIM is a group-level youth development intervention designed to reduce sexual risk behaviors among youth ages 11-14 by providing them with the motivation to make safe choices and to address deeper barriers to sexual risk prevention (e.g., hopelessness, poverty, risk opportunities in low-income environments). The program consists of twelve,  50 minute sessions delivered in a school classroom twice a week over six weeks.

Project AIM core elements include:

Engage youth in thinking about a positive possible future self.

Engage youth in present actions to achieve future success.

Encourage youth to safeguard the future through risk reduction.
