Prevention & Training services include HIV and pregnancy-prevention education for youth in all of the agency’s programs that are effective in helping youth reduce risky behaviors, as well as training other providers from across the state in how to do HIV prevention work with high-risk youth and to be more welcoming to youth of all sexualities and gender identities. New Beginnings founded and sponsors a state-wide Youth Action Board (YAB) where young people with lived experience in the homeless, child welfare, justice/corrections, and/or behavioral health systems have paid opportunities to gain leadership skills and advocate for system and policy change in Maine.
