Youth Unleashing Power: a pozitive youth symposium 2017


YUP 2017 Canada's Only National Symposium for Positive Youth

Registration is now open  for Canada’s only peer-led symposium and retreat for HIV and Hepatitis C positive youth! If you are between the ages of 18-32, living with HIV and/or Hepatitis C, then you’ll want to join us for an incredible week of knowledge sharing, storytelling, and relaxing on the shores of beautiful Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island.

Your registration includes 5 nights accommodation at the Cowichan Lake Outdoor Education and Conference Centre.

The centre is located on the lake front and provides many opportunities for recreational activities and exploring nature.

There are just 25 spots, so register now to avoid missing out!

Symposium content will be determined via a Call for Abstracts process. Please get in touch if you are interested in presenting your work!
We are also seeking volunteers to provide a spectrum of health care services, including massage, acupuncture, and more.

This project is made possible through generous funding from Island Health’s Community Grants Program and is a partnership of the Vancouver Island PWA Society and YouthCo.
