Core Training February 2015




Core Training: February 7th and 8th, 2015  9:30am-5pm both days

You're invited to YouthCO's mandatory (and fun!) training for all new members.

You'll get to learn about YouthCO, our values, our programs, participate in training around HIV and Hep C and what your role in the organization can be. We'll discuss how to work to de-stigmatize HIV and Hep C, where to look for accurate information and testing, and how colonization, oppression, and social determinants of health interact with HIV.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Daniella at

Please let us know of any dietary restrictions.

See you bright and early on Saturday Feb 7!

Will you come?

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
