Popular Opinion Leaders (POL) Training #1 | Oct. 11

"In collaboration with the Multicultural AIDS Coalition (MAC) and Fenway Health, HBGC implements a community intervention aimed at challenging social norms around HIV and HIV testing.  The program trains individuals how to have relaxed and accurate conversations with their peers about HIV and HIV testing.

Undergoing the training empowers participants to communicate to their peers about the importance of practicing safe sex and getting tested regularly.  As a result of the program, individuals are able to create lasting change by helping to increase awareness of HIV while supporting the people they care most about in lowering their risk.

Program participants receive a $50 gift card after completing the two trainings associated with the program and reporting back on how 10 of the conversations went. >> Read More

Youth On Fire


(617) 661-2508


Hours of operation (or meeting times & dates): 

Monday: 11:00 AM to 8 PM

Tuesday: 1:00 PM to 6 PM

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday: 11:00 AM to 6 PM

(hot meals are served between 2:30 and 5:30 PM)


The Youth On Fire drop-in center was established in the fall of 2000 to provide a welcoming and non-judgmental environment for homeless and street-involved youth. YOF is open five days a week and serves young people between the ages of 14 and 24. Often the behaviors necessary to survive on the streets put these youth at a higher risk for contracting HIV. YOF serves the physical and mental needs of these youth.

The center offers basic necessities, as well as prevention information on HIV, STDs, Hepatitis C and other diseases associated with high-risk behavior. YOF has onsite hot meals, clothing, showers, and laundry facilities, as well as weekly medical care, mental health counseling, and referrals to community resources. The ultimate goal of YOF is to help as many youth as possible to have a healthy lifestyle, remain HIV-negative, and seek greater stability through permanent housing, employment, or school.
