Inspire, Dream, Explore, Learn, and Now Lead!  

(Currently On Hold) 


The Train the Trainer Program is a rigorous peer education and leadership training designed to enhance women’s experience with living with HIV by advancing their HIV knowledge and professional skills to deliver HIV awareness, accurate health information, and prevention messages back to their communities. Our training groups are tailored for peers to serve as reliable allies to lean on for advice, support and direction as well as a resource to share their experience and health knowledge through group activities and workshops. As part of the training program, the peer educators assist in the development of workshop curriculum and power-point slides, prepare for presentations through role-play, video-feedback, and peer review, and then actually conduct workshops for other peers and/or staff members from various agencies.  Over the years, HOCC’s peer educational team, Women’s Health and Education Leadership Team (WHEL Team) provided monthly peer health & wellness educational support for the women of CARES of MOC in Fitchburg MA.


“HOCC meets women where they are and giving them a chance to grow and even become leaders.
