**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.
