Advocacy Support Worker

“We found youth wanting to discuss all kinds of problems that affect their ability to look after their health – relationships, housing, employment, food security. Without working on these challenges, the progress we make on immediate health concerns may be erased in other areas. Yet, talking with our doctors about these non-medical issues was making it hard to see our increasing number of patients. Now our volunteer ASWs meet with kids, sometimes for an hour or more. We even have kids who return just to see the ASW.”

www.blush.vch.ca/

BLUSH has been delivering sexual health education to youth around the Lower Mainland for more than 20 years. You might know us by their old name – Condomania.

Their service area includes Vancouver and Richmond. They serve secondary schools and also welcome workshop requests from youth groups and organizations who serve youth. Occasionally, when they have capacity, they are able to serve areas just outside of Vancouver and Richmond.

BLUSH Mission:

BLUSH, under Vancouver Coastal Health, is a peer-to-peer education program working with youth during the developmental window of age 12-18 to provide opportunities for youth to explore attitudes, values, and behaviours that support sexual health and well-being for lifelong impact.

BLUSH is Bold Learning for Understanding Sexual Health

They love “Bold Learning” because they believe in open, candid and unapologetic discussions around sex and sexual health.

They believe these topics are as vital as any other classroom subjects and their peer-to-peer approach is the best way to generate discussions and inspire learning.

For youth, by youth

Their program is youth-driven meaning every aspect of it from the curriculum, evaluation and branding was developed in consultation with Youth Educators in addition to their prevention specialists.

They believe their Youth Educators know the students best and can advocate for topics that are most useful and relevant to them. Peer education is also shown in health promotion, literacy and education to have the most impact.
