Community Health Worker

The AIDS/HIV Services Group (ASG) is seeking a Community Health Worker to advance the organization’s mission of building community for people living with, affected by or at risk for HIV or AIDS. Located in Charlottesville, VA, ASG provides an integrated service model through a diverse set of programs including direct client services, education, prevention, testing and advocacy.

The Health Educator will work in the community providing outreach and implementing the following CDC evidence-based interventions:

• SISTA: This group-level, gender- and culturally- relevant intervention, is designed to increase condom use with African American women. Five peer-led group sessions are conducted that focus on ethnic and gender pride, HIV knowledge, and skills training around sexual risk reduction behaviors and decision making. The intervention is based on Social Learning theory as well as the theory of Gender and Power. The SISTA project specifically targets sexually active African-American women. • CLEAR (Choosing Life: Empowerment, Action, Results!): This individual-level intervention uses cognitive-behavioral techniques within a client-centered model to motivate people to change behavior. CLEAR is an evidence-based HIV prevention and health promotion intervention for youth and adults (ages 16 or older) living with HIV/AIDS or at high risk for HIV. Because of the way CLEAR is designed (i.e., 5 required core skill sessions, 21 menu sessions, and a wrap-up session), counselors can tailor the intervention to fit each client’s unique circumstances.
