Feeling Berry Good: Mpowerment Hangout

With the weather getting warmer, it’s the perfect time to go berry picking at Maan Farms! 

Let’s enjoy that sunshine while petting farm animals and gathering some delicious fruit to take home! :) 

We will meet outside of Maan Farms (790 McKenzie Road, Abbotsford) between 12:45PM – 1:00PM Saturday June 22, 2019

★★Things to bring ★★

★ Water bottle
★ Comfortable shoes & clothing for being outdoors 
★ (Optional) Camera for all those photo-ops!! 

We can provide bus tickets and help with transport! If you have any questions leading up to the event, please email Emily @ emilyb@youthco.org. To get in touch with me on the day of the event, please call or text 604-838-2556!


Mpowerment is a space for queer and trans young people ages 19 to 29 years old to meet, have fun and support each other in making informed decisions about our sexual health!

We are committed to reducing stigma related to HIV and to building communities where we feel safe talking about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure.

This event will be taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the Matsqui and Sema:th peoples.




Due to the venue being an open-air environment, this will not be a scent-reduced event. Animals will be at the farm for anyone with particular allergies. The parking lot and trails have gravel and there is an accessibility washroom available.
This event is FREE and open to youth ages 19-29 years old. If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Emily @ emilyb@youthco.org for more information.

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!
