   Boys Coming of Age (BCOA) will provide quality development and manhood training for African-American adolescent males with either behavioral acquired Human Immunodeficiency Virus (BHIV) or perinatal HIV in an experiential Rite of Passage process designed to successfully transition them into adult care.

The goals of BCOA are to introduce participants to the responsibilities of manhood and to achieve outcomes in the following areas: develop coping strategies, acquire key skills for living, decrease risky sexual behaviors, navigate the confusing adolescent stage and identify behavioral adherence difficulties for following regimens for antiretroviral therapy (ART) medications (non-adherence).
