    On cover: What's your legacy? AIM (adult identity mentoring).

    Project AIM is a group-level, youth development intervention designed to reduce HIV risk behaviors among youth ages 11 to 14. The intervention is based on Markus’ Theory of Possible Selves, which states that a person’s motivation is determined by a balance of positive and negative ways people see themselves in the future. Individuals who are able to imagine both possible positive and negative futures are more likely to work toward their life goals and achieve future suc- cess. Thus, Project AIM encourages youth to imagine a posi- tive future and discuss how current risk behaviors can be a barrier to a successful adulthood.

    Project AIM consists of twelve 50-minute sessions conducted by 2 facilitators to groups of 10 to 18 youth. Project AIM is implemented in small groups twice a week, over a six-week period. Project AIM is divided into four parts.
