Core Training September 2019

This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Swx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

You're invited to our weekend-long Core Training on September 21st and 22nd, 9:30am-5:00pm both days.

Make sure you RSVP to reserve your spot!

Core Training is mandatory for anyone who wants to be involved with YouthCO. (We promise, it’s lots of fun!) It’s also open to anyone (under 30) who wants to learn more about HIV and Hep C. 

Learn all about YouthCO, our values and programs, and how you can get involved! Receive our 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. 

YouthCO is committed to making our programs as inclusive and supportive as possible of all youth who are interested in attending. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make Core Training more accessible for you.


Breakfast, snacks, and lunch are provided, so let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.

ACCESSIBILITY

Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. There are two gender inclusive washrooms, one of which is wheelchair accessible. 

We're pleased to offer EN-ASL interpretation for this event. If you will be using ASL, it would help our interpreters to know in advance. If you're able to let us know by September 9th at ghadad@youthco.org, we'd appreciate it. Hope to see you there!

If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Ghada at ghadad@youthco.org for more information

See you bright and early on Saturday, September 21st!

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!
