The Young Men’s Connection brings together the communities of young Latino and African American men (18-24) who have sex with men (YMSM) to have candid conversations that promote positive behavior changes. Our goal through this project is to reduce and prevent alcohol/substance abuse as well as HIV high-risk sexual behaviors in young Latino and African American men.

Participants foster new friendships through team building activities, and are provided with the life skills to make health-conscious decisions regarding sex and substance use. The Young Men's Connection meets bi-weekly and is facilitated by a trained staff member of The Wall-Las Memorias Project. 

The Wall-Las Memorias Project works collaboratively with the Wesley Health Centers on the Young Men’s Connection to recruit and educate participants on the importance of behavioral change. This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service, and serviced through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
