Virtual Empowerment Initiatives
The TGNC Leadership Space is a closed group that focuses on delivering and empowering curriculum that emphasizes career building for our community members. Group members are tasked with optimizing their resume, conducting outreach work, training in Rapid HIV Certification, and developing their public speaking skills. All of the challenges are structured to kindle the Leadership.
Translatinx Network has a consistent presence in rallies, community forums, panels, and social movements to raise awareness of the culture-specific issues faced by our community. We are committed to engaging the community members who are most marginalized and providing education to raise awareness about the needs of our community members.
Our direct services
Virtual Peer Counseling
Translatinx Network provides peer counseling services to individuals who are struggling with issues related to gender identity, bullying, isolation, and other concerns that impact their emotional health. We also provide linkages to supportive services throughout New York City.
Virtual HIV Prevention Education
Our agency provides HIV-prevention services throughout New York City in order to address the disproportionate burden identified in transgender individuals. We approach this issue with great empathy and insight into the unique issues that impact the risk factors in the transgender and gender non-conforming community. We provide HIV and PrEP education, risk assessments and risk reduction counseling, condom distribution, HIV/STI testing referrals, and linkage to healthcare.
Virtual Support Groups
Our support groups provide a confidential safe space for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. This space is utilized by group facilitators for peer support and enrichment. Our support groups are scheduled at various locations in New York City that are easily accessible through public transportation.
