The goal of the symposium is to bring together community youth and university students to share their research and artistic pieces on youth sexual health. In the current political climate, this year’s symposium will provide a crucial forum for solidarity and resistance. During the symposium, students, youth, academics, policymakers, and community members working in or interested in these fields will be given the opportunity to network and engage in each other’s’ work. We encourage students from all disciplines to present research “in progress,” test out ideas for a thesis or dissertation proposal or present original research and/or artistic pieces.

We are interested in work that includes but is not limited to:

Social justice and sexual and reproductive rights
HIV prevention, sexual and reproductive health
Harm reduction
Trans and intersex sexual health inclusion
Indigenous and two-spirit sexual health access
Youth focused access and education initiatives
Community based and participatory methodologies and alternative pedagogies that promote youth involvement and empowerment.
