Work at YouthCO

YouthCO is an organization of young leaders affected by HIV and Hep C.  We work towards creating a world where we empower each other to make informed decisions about our own well-being. We work together to put an end to the stigma surrounding HIV and Hep C. YouthCO is youth-driven, inclusive, sex-positive, anti-oppressive and innovative!

We have also put together some tips for applying to a job because we love receiving awesome job applications! We want to share some of the things we look for when reading your application to help you make it as amazing as possible, whether you are applying to work at YouthCO or elsewhere.

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!
