Jerome Hoskins is a highly energetic learning and development professional with an established background of more than 12 years designing and delivering learning and performance solutions across various industries. Originally from Trinidad & Tobago, Jerome spent his early years in North Carolina where he remained until adulthood. In 2013 he uprooted his life again and relocated to Atlanta where he currently resides. Jerome’s understanding and deep connection to communities of color has allowed him to advocate on behalf of those greatly impacted by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This understanding combined with his professional background drives Jerome’s commitment to building the skills and capacity of individuals and organizations that serve and support persons living with HIV.
As the Chair of the Board of Directors for Transforming HIV Resentment Into Victories Everlasting Support Services (THRIVE SS) from 2016 – 2019, Jerome began his tenure in the public health and human services ecosystems by providing mentoring, leadership development, curriculum development, program delivery, and peer support to over 900 members of the THRIVE SS network in the metro Atlanta area. Additionally a master trainer, Jerome has facilitated training programs such as the Building Leaders of Color (BLOC) Program for the National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC), Building Leadership Bootcamp for the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA), as well as Trauma Informed Care for People Living With HIV Curriculum for the National Center for Trauma Informed Care (SAMHSA – NCTIC).
In his down time (yes it exists), Jerome loves to spend time with his 12 pound puppy Charlie – who is half Terrier and half terror. He also loves trying new foods and traveling to fun places; he has even found the time to join Toastmasters to enhance his public speaking and leadership skills.
