**Proceeds to Yúusnewas and the Skwo-mesh Language Academy**

The Squamish Language Academy is a community-based institution that seeks to build a language immersion school for the nearly extinct Squamish Language. The academy will first start with a language immersion house where 5-6 participants live together for a year in a house and speak only their ancestral language while living together. This will be followed by the forming of a full-time language immersion program where 10-15 participants will join as a cohort and do full-time language immersion study for 12-18 months while being given a living stipend. The Squamish Language Academy will create fluency once again, and reverse the decline of this local Indigenous language.

Yúusnewas, meaning 'taking care of each other' in the Squamish Language, is an Indigenous-led peer education program at YouthCO that works to share HIV and sexual health knowledge with other youth so that they can make informed decisions regarding their well-being.

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!
