Community Health Promoters
Community Health Promoters (CHPs) are LGBTQ and allied youth, ages 14 to 24, who support Diverse & Resilient’s mission by caring about their community and spending time spreading information to peers, helping them live safe and healthy lives. Diverse & Resilient is a public health organization in Milwaukee with a mission to achieve health equity and improve the safety and well-being of LGBTQ people and communities in Wisconsin.
All CHPs come to Diverse & Resilient for meetings twice per month. During meetings, they spend time developing leadership skills and getting to know other young people from around Milwaukee through recreational and educational activities pertaining to sexual health, safer sex, reducing harm from substance use, healthy relationships, social justice, and other issues within and effecting the LGBTQ community. CHPs also have opportunities to take on leadership roles within the program as well as participate in community outreach, outings, and special events.
