I worked specifically with the Youth WINGS peer education project (ALAS Jóvenes), which began as a pilot project in 2004. The majority of my work involved curriculum development for the youth peer educators. I edited the Reference Manual for youth peer educators and created materials for each of the five modules of the Phase I curriculum, including lesson plans, workshop activities, and a baseline questionnaire. I compiled the results of the community needs assessment interviews in order to assist in the selection of six communities in which to implement the youth peer education program. I designed the Phase II curriculum (which will be used as additional intensive training for youth peer educators who have completed Phase I). I conducted two site visits to observe a presentation for the adult family project and to observe needs assessment interviews with community members. I designed a focus group guide for future use in conducting an evaluation of ALAS Jóvenes. I also revised many of the youth WINGS forms and paperwork to be more culturally appropriate
