Facebook_Cover_Mpowerment_Wreck_Beach.png

It's time for another outdoor Mpowerment Hangout. This time we will be enjoying the sun's rays and ocean waves at Wreck Beach.
Wreck Beach, on traditional Musqueam lands, is a popular clothing optional beach adjacent to University of British Columbia.
 
*Wreck Beach is located 500 steps down a cliff. There are portable-style toilets at the top and bottom of these stairs.*
 
Whether this will be your first time at Wreck Beach, or whether you're a Wreck Beach regular, we strive to make this hangout a fun time for everyone. At this beach clothing is optional, and body-shaming will not be tolerated.
 
Bring:
- sunscreen
- bottled Water (lots)
- a towel/sheet to sit on
- cash to buy food from vendors

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!
