MPowerment is a national community building and HIV prevention project for gay, bi and queer men between the ages of 18-29. At MPowerment New Haven, we plan gay/queer events for people to meet, network, and socialize in spaces that are creative, safe, and fun. Our Core group of volunteers meets on Monday nights at 6:30 to plan these events and discuss community needs. Our MPowerment program is housed by APNH: A Place to Nourish your Health, and strives to bring people together from all over the Greater New Haven area.
