About Positive Program
Positive Programs is a special place for young people living with HIV and/or Hep C to connect and share our experiences. We offer free programs and assistance for youth with HIV and Hep C throughout British Columbia. Although most participants are living have HIV, we are striving to better serve those living with Hep C too. Our programs include one-to-one supports, leadership opportunities, and camps.
Youth living with HIV and Hep C are welcome in all YouthCO's programs and disclosure is not mandatory for participation. Here at YouthCO you can meet others, fight stigma, and get supports from one another.
Our office is located on unceded, stolen land, home to xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, səlilwətaɬ Nations. Our work takes place on ancestral and traditional territories, and current homelands, of many Indigenous Nations taken through colonization that continues today.
Greater Vancouver Zoo is wheelchair accessible, however it's not accessible with transit so rides will be provided. Please reach out if you have other accessibility needs.
We do not need to disclose our HIV or Hep C status to the group to participate. All participants agree to maintain confidentiality.
