World AIDS Day: Youth Together!


This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

You're invited to celebrate World AIDS Day at YouthCO!

Each year, YouthCO hosts a World AIDS Day event for people of all ages to celebrate and remember our collective response to HIV. This day is also the kick off to Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week.

After such a full and exciting year at YouthCO, we're looking forward to taking time to acknowledge the strong and commited people that have shaped our work, and contribute to our mission of reducing the impact of HIV on our communities. This evening will be celebrating our communities' responses to three decades of HIV, and the many people (of all ages!) who have been apart of it.

This event is open to all ages, with free entry. Drinks will be available for $4, and food will be served throughout the evening.

Accessibility: 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.  

ASL interpretation will be made available if requested by November 17 at 5pm. If you would like ASL interpretation, please contact us through a message, email us at, or comment on the event wall by Nov. 17th at 5pm.

YouthCO is committed to making our events as inclusive and accessible as possible. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make this event more accessible for you. 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Fahmy at

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!
