Positive Youth Online

Positive Youth Online is an open space for youth living with HIV to connect and share ideas, opinions, and build relationships. Each month, we’ll focus on specific topics chosen by youth, and also be sure to have lots of time to talk about anything (and everything) else you want! These online hangouts are facilitated by YouthCO’s Program Intern, Samira, and the YouthCO staff team – we’re all youth! 

We’re always open to suggestions of topics for future conversations, and can definitely help to answer questions, find resources, and build community. In October, we’ll start by talking a bit about self-care, from what we do when having a bad day to how we take care of our bodies!

Sound interesting? That’s great! RSVP using the button below, and watch your email for the log on details. Stay tuned for upcoming information leading up to our opening night on October 17.

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!
