HIV Testing Columbus – Men's Sexual Health


PROMISE is a program within Project INK focused on storytelling and role models. A role model can be any man in the community who has overcome challenges and models a new behavior that promotes a healthy lifestyle. A role model is motivated to move from “not knowing” to an expanded sense of what is possible to imagine.

Role model stories are captured and shared with the community by peer advocates. A peer advocate is a volunteer who mentors other men and engages peer networks to share stories.

The goal of PROMISE is to utilize peer networks to identify role models and share stories of positive change related to sexual health to motivate and impact others.

PROMISE is recruiting men who have sex with men to participate in an interview to learn more about the community. 

Peer advocate application information available. Join our volunteers to make an impact in your community.
