The Minnesota Young Women's Collaborative:
A Culturally Responsive Community Primary Prevention Program

The goal of the Minnesota Young Women's Collaborative Program's goal is to engage college students in Asian American Pacific Islander women's sexual health issues while empowering the young women to be community-based participatory researchers, leaders, and social justice advocates. The program, which started in California, has been successfully implemented at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities Campus. This year, it will be hosted for a third year at the University of Minnesota, and is also expanding to include greater Minnesota at St. Cloud State University. The project is funded by the Minnesota Department of Health's Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative.
