About HollaBack STL

Our mission is to empower minority youth and young adults to take responsibility for their own health and wellness by providing them with prevention & education services including access to resources and social service referrals.

 

The University of Missouri-St. Louis’ HollaBack STL initiative has offered free evidence-based educational programs for the past 18 years throughout the Greater St. Louis Area allowing us to mentor and engage thousands of youth. Our programs focus on a variety of health and life skills related topics including sexual risk avoidance, HIV/AIDS & STD prevention, substance use prevention, body image & self-esteem development, healthy relationship building, and success planning. Through the support of grant funding and collaborative partnerships, we strive to make a positive impact in the lives of our program participants and their families.
