Game Changer volunteers, led by a staff member, join our Outreach team in undertaking outreach activities to promote safer sex and to recruit and promote Game Changer’s events and activities.
Peer outreach may consist of team interventions targeting groups of young men accessing settings frequented by young gay and bisexual men to promote safer sex. This includes outreach at community events such as Birmingham Pride, the Car and Bike show, The Classic, etc.
Peers who conduct outreach also play a critical role in recruiting MSM for HIV testing and Game Changer Project registration. Volunteers are able to reduce barriers for MSM in community venues who wish to know their HIV status.
Volunteers may also be called upon to assist in creation of condom packs and safer sex kits, as well as help execute Game Changer’s larger events throughout the year.
