Yúusnewas announces First Directions Film Release

Yúusnewas, the Indigenous youth program within YouthCO, hold a retreat for Indigenous youth from across the province every year. This year we had the honor of hosting 22 vibrant Indigenous youth.

We did one day of sexual health workshops, and three days of film making with our friends at Reel Youth. This retreat was made possible through our partnerships with community members and the First Nations Health Authority!

Throughout the time we shared together we had many discussions around topics like gender, sexuality, HIV + Hep C, culture, language, and mental health. These films were inspired by these conversations. You can truly see the creativity and passion these youth put into them.

Check out the films.

Please feel free to share widely across all forms of social media and within your networks.
