Core Training

Hi there! My name is Ghada and I'm the Peer Education Coordinator at YouthCO. Part of my job is coordinating our core training weekends which happen three times a year usually in January, June and September. Core training is free, and is open to any youth under 30 who want to learn more about HIV, Hep C and harm reduction! Core training is also mandatory for anyone looking to get involved with us, whether through joining our staff, board or volunteer teams. 

Each core training takes place on both Saturday and Sunday from 9:30am-5:00pm. Over the weekend, we'll get to chat and learn all about YouthCO, our values and programs. Receive nationally-recognized training on HIV and Hep C, with a focus on challenging stigma. Explore the intersections between HIV and other issues like colonization, oppression, and criminalization. Gain practical skills around safer sex and harm reduction, and share delicious food and discussions with fellow peers! Core Training is also a great opportunity to get connected with staff members who run our programs if we're wanting to volunteer or apply for a job. 

YouthCO is committed to making our programs as inclusive and supportive as possible of all youth who are interested in attending. We're happy to chat before the event about how to best meet your access needs in order for you to get the most out of the training weekend! 

Interested in taking part in core training? This page is a great way to see our most up-to-date information on when the next core training is happening, and you can also email us to let us know if you're interested in being added to our core training emailing list. If you have any further questions, you can email ghadad@youth.org :)
