Mississippi Youth Innovation (MYInnovation)

MYInnovation is a training program design to empower young people (ages 18-24) through research and program development training. Selected MYInnovators will complete a ten-month (September 2022 – June 2023) program and receive training and technical assistance to develop interventions that increase access to treatment and preventative healthcare services for young people living with or at risk of acquiring sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Upon completion of the MYInnovation incubator program, MYInnovators will pitch their interventions to funders, who will select programs to fund for implementation starting July 2023.
