Diversity & Allyship YCO Member Training

This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

If you've completed Core Training or are looking for a space to expand your knowledge of anti-oppression, allyship, and community-building join us Monday June 5 from 6pm-8:30pm for our Diversity & Allyship Training for members of YouthCO!

Snacks will be served at 6pm followed by a 6:30pm start for our workshop

In this interactive workshop we are able to put our knowledge of YouthCOs values to use and take the time to work through intentional conversations about allyship and solidarity building across communities in respectful and meaningful ways! By taking the time to sit down with each other and share our knowledge around the ways various forms of oppression interact with one another and are normalized in our day to day experiences we can build toolkits to unpack and respond to cissexism, settler-colonialism, racism and other systems of oppression.

In working through these issues together we know that we can better support each other and build community in accountable and caring ways!

Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. Our washroom is gender inclusive, but unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible. Please contact William at williamf@youthco.org with any questions about accessibility needs or dietary restrictions.

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!
