YouthCO’s Youth Worker can provide one-to-one conversations and referral services for those of us looking for individual support. It can help to talk with another young person who will listen to us, and advocate for us when needed.
Connecting with our Youth Worker is a great way to get assistance from a trained peer who will answer our questions, help us identify ways to support our health, and facilitate referrals.
The Youth Worker offers nonjudgmental, inclusive, and ongoing support, with topics such as:
- Information regarding testing, STIs and HIV
- Safer sex and safer substance use practices
- Community resources and services (including healthcare, housing, social services, etc)
- Mental and social health
To get connected, drop by our office at 205-568 Seymour St., email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 604-789-0145.
These services are offered in partnership with the Health Promotion Case Management Program, funded through Vancouver Coastal Health. For full details visit http://healthpromotionprogram.ca/.
