Season's Skating: an Mpowerment Hang-out

Brrr, it’s cold outside. Come in and get warm and cozy! We’ll be hosting some festive activities (card-making, gingerbread decorating, hot-chocolate drinking, etc.) here at Mpowerment headquarters. Come relax and chill with us. This is also a chance for us to reflect on all of the sexual health knowledge we’ve developed throughout the year.

Afterwards, we will head out to Robson square for ice skating. You can also meet us there if you want. 


6:30 – 7:30pm: Meet at Mpowerment Headquarters for festive fun.
7:30 – 8:00pm: to Robson Square
8:00 – 9:00pm: Skating at Robson Square 
Skate rentals are $4.
Message us for any questions about costs.


Mpowerment Headquarters is held at YouthCO, which is currently wheelchair accessible. The washroom at YouthCO is single stall and gender-neutral, and unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
At this time we are in the process of creating an organizational policy around ASL interpretation at our events. We apologize that we can not provide ASL interpretation for this event. 
For further accessibility information on YouthCO's space, please message us, or check:
(The linked document has not been updated since our wheelchair accessible washroom has been out-of-order).

We are currently looking into accessibility information on Robson Square's Skating Rink and will provide you with information as we find out.

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!
