My name is Dylan Brooks and work for Compass, the Gay and Lesbian Community Center in Lake Worth, Florida as the Mpowerment Program Coordinator. I have been involved in the field of HIV prevention for five years. My passion started while I was a volunteer with AIDS Athens in Georgia and it just grew from there! I have always strived to help others around me and I believe I have found my niche in the field of HIV prevention and youth sexual health. I graduated from the University of North Georgia with an Associate’s Degree in Science in May of 2013 and I currently attend Florida Atlantic University for my Bachelor of Social Work degree. I find that through my work, I have been able to connect with youth across Southern Florida to promote a feeling of acceptance, safer sex choices, and build a community for LGBTQ people to thrive in!
