WHO WE ARE
The Evolution Project is a program of AID Atlanta for young black gay/bisexual men and transgender individuals between 18 and 28 years of age. Evolution is a safe space for young people to connect, develop strengths and skills, support each other, have fun and achieve positive goals. The program staff assists these young men to enhance their HIV and STD risk reduction skills by utilizing the will, talent and vision of the members themselves.
The Evolution Project is distinguished by the active leadership and involvement of the members. Members play an intricate role in planning activities and special events. Examples include Monday Movie Night, discussions like “Brothers Speak”, cookouts, card games, parties, balls, community forums and more. The Evolution Project provides access to HIV testing and STD screenings on site and at off-site locations. Members are provided linkage to free medical screenings, case management, HIV/STD treatment and other health care services. Additionally, the Evolution Project offers mental health services such as individual, relationship and group counseling.
