Yúusnewas: Hang with us!

Are you an Indigenous Youth? Do you have access to the internet?

Join Yúusnewas for a casual hangout via Zoom (it's a group video chat)! We'll be connecting with each other and sharing ways we are taking care of each other and ourselves through COVID-19, and looking for ways to stay connected online in the coming weeks!

 

This is the first of our online events to come in April!


About Yúusnewas:

Yúusnewas is an Indigenous peer-led education program that provides workshops on HIV and sexual health in urban and rural communities across British Columbia.

We approach the topics of sexual health and harm reduction by centering Indigenous perspectives and incorporating traditional teachings.

Our office is on the unceded and ancestral territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh people

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!
