Youth Worker in Fraser!

Meet Tyler Robinson! Tyler is part of YouthCO's Poz Programs team, and works one-on-one with youth living with HIV who live in the Fraser region.

Tyler started at YouthCO in June 2019. He has been working to meet up with youth and introduce himself to organizations and clinical teams throughout Fraser. Tyler is available to connect with youth in a bunch of ways: meeting up to chat and be a listening ear over coffee or a milkshake, driving youth to and from appointments, and helping youth navigate the healthcare system, explore school options, apply for scholarships, grants, and income assistance. He can also offer support around housing, support PWD applications, and connecting to community programming. For example, Tyler can connect youth to YouthCO's programs - our queer and trans program called Mpowerment, our Indigenous program called Yúusnewas, and our Poz Youth Meetups and leadership opportunities for youth living with HIV!

We are just as excited as Tyler that he has joined the YouthCO team in his new role as an HIV Support Worker to empower youth! Tyler is committed to adding even more support, fun and energy to the space! Before working at YouthCO, Tyler worked in a similar role within the Vancouver area, and volunteered as one of our Camp Moomba counselors for the past four years!.

Call or text Tyler anytime at 778-877-9115! His usual hours are Monday to Friday from 10:00AM – 5:00PM, and he also works some evenings and weekends to be able to stay in touch with youth throughout Fraser. You can also email him at tylerr@youthco.org.

Tyler is excited to connect with you!


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!
