Spring Cleaning Exchange

Spring_Cleaning_Exchange_banner.jpg

It's time to clean out our closets! For the end of May, Mpowerment is hosting an exchange event where you're invited to bring anything you own that would benefit a new owner: CLOTHES, BOOKS, DVDs, ART SUPPLIES, HOME DECOR AND OTHER KNICK KNACKS WELCOME!
 
Once you arrive with things you'd like to get rid of, we'll set out everything and put them out on display. Then, all the participants will get a chance to walk around and browse all the things. Anyone is welcome to take anything and as much as they'd like, regardless of how much/what they've brought.
 
Come and swap! Anything that doesn't get taken by a new owner will be donated to a local thrift store. The Mpowerment Core Group team has chosen to donate any left over items from this event to
Gordon Neighbourhood House's The Attic Thrift Store.

Mpowerment events are planned by and for young self-identified men who are gay, bi, or queer. We invite all guys who like guys and their friends to attend! *This event is for all genders*
 
Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. Our washroom is gender inclusive, but unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible.
 
This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

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!
