Adrian Jones is a training manager at HCET. Jones studied African American studies and Women's Studies with an emphasis on sexuality education at the University of Wisconsin Madison. She has worked with youth in various capacities for over 15 years. Her passion for working with youth has taken her into classrooms to teach comprehensive sexuality education and provide sexual health trainings to youth-serving professionals throughout Dane County. Through her academic and professional experience, Jones has become increasingly focused on the needs of youth and health disparities in communities of color. What she finds most rewarding about her work is hearing the success stories of those on the ground working with youth across Wisconsin.
