AccessKCTeen2 Trial Design

3Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: Intervention Trial ParticipantsExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
All adolescents will have access to THO+ activities and materials shared by the peer leaders. All adolescents will be asked to complete an eligibility screening survey and baseline survey online or in-person. They will complete short surveys at 2, 4 and 6 months via Twilio text, call, or email. Peer Leaders Investigators will enroll up to 40 Peer Leaders. In addition to the above activities (under intervention trial participant), if a teen is a "peer leader" they will attend a training session in-person or online with our study team to learn about sexual and mental health information and how to share information with their friends (like text or social media). The peer leaders will answer the same surveys described above and will be asked about their Peer Leader experience and how they are sharing the study health information.
Group II: Event Day ParticipantsExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Adolescents not already in the trial who attend demonstration and clinical care events must enroll as research participants if they want to receive study medications or testing. This again is all optional to teens. This survey will ask for contact information which is required to track study medications and provide testing results, all other survey questions will be optional.
Group III: Adult StakeholdersActive Control1 Intervention
Adults Involved with teens (e.g., parent of teen, member of community, works at community partner organization) that will help promote community based events and provide feedback on events.
