ifIknew is a health initiative for young adults that uses a multi media approach, including social media and in person programs, to address the contemporary issues that impact the well-being, self-image, careers, and relationships of people in their 20's and 30's.

If I Knew is a prevention education project that raises awareness about risky behaviors that can profoundly impact lives.

ifIknew.org is a multi-media prevention education project of Jewish Community Services of Baltimore, dedicated to raising awareness about the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs, the spread of HIV/AIDS, bullying and other risky behaviors that can profoundly impact lives.  Through this website, our companion Facebook page, and in-person presentations, we are dedicated to increasing knowledge about risky behaviors and their consequences and providing you with the tools to help you make healthy life decisions. ifIknew has won two awards, the Kovod Award for Excellence in Effective Use of Social Media from the Association of Jewish Family and Children’s Agencies (AJFCA) and the Challenge of Innovation Award from the Darrell D. Friedman Institute for Professional Development.

Our health educators offer in-person prevention education programs to schools and community groups in the Greater Baltimore Area. For program information, click here.

Prevention Education activities are made possible, in part, by theSteven Kaufman AIDS Outreach Project and the Nikki Perlow Foundation.  Additional support for the if I knew project has been provided by the Children of Harvey M. and Lyn P. Meyerhoff Philanthropic Fund.
