What do you THIVK?

Attention ALL youth 29 and under!

*Due to last minute changes, we are hosting this as an online event! Join us using Zoom, a free app/software that let's us connect by video and audio. Here is the link: https://zoom.us/j/847849299!.*

YouthCO is coming to Kelowna!! We will be in conversation with youth in Kelowna at the Living Positive Resource Centre on March 12 about hooking up, and what happens when HIV comes up - or doesn't!

Whether we are around hookups, friends, family, or loved ones, there are a lot of things to consider before the word "HIV" is even spoken. Our mission at YouthCO is to reduce HIV stigma - and one way we know how to do that is getting people together.

This conversation will be facilitated by two positive youth. Youth under 30, of any HIV status, are welcome to join us for dinner and discussion.

If you have any dietary needs or access needs, please let us know when you RSVP.

RSVP if you are interested in sharing what you -THIVK-, on this Tuesday evening, by contacting William at williamf@youthco.org.

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!
