Each year, there are approximately 2 million homeless and runaway youths in the United States.
On any given night, there are 1,000 homeless youngsters living on the streets of San Diego, CA.
Homeless young people are commonly involved in one or more of the following activities that place them at risk for HIV infection-unprotected sexual intercourse, needle-sharing in the use of injectable drugs, sex with someone who injects drugs.
The Teen Peer Outreach-Street Work Project trains teen peer educators to work in three existing San Diego youth service programs with street outreach staff members to provide HIV prevention education and referral services to San Diego's homeless youth.
