Beach weather is finally here! 

Join us for a chill picnic at Sunset Beach! We’ll bring the music, food and games. You just bring yourself : ) 

We’ll set up around 6:30PM and update on this page with our location once we find a good spot. Look out for the striped rainbow beach blankets to find us!

Drop in anytime between 6:30PM and 8:30PM.
If you need help finding the group, call or text Ivan @ 778-223-6712.


Mpowerment is a trans-inclusive and gender-affirming program by and for young men and gender diverse folks who are gay, bi, Two-Spirit, or queer to hangout and learn more about ourselves and each other. We work to create safer spaces for all youth including those of us living with HIV. 

This event will be taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations. 


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 Ivan @ 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!
