YSWC currently has a number of major projects on the go. We also regularly engage with current issues in a variety of ways outside of our project work. Projects are developed on an ongoing basis to address key priorities as they emerge and capacity allows.
SUPPORTING WORKERS' AUTONOMY
The Supporting Workers' Autonomy Project Yukon (SWAPY) project was born from 20+ years of learning about poverty, homelessness, substance use, community building, and increasing safety in the Yukon. In this work it was identified there is a community need to engage with people with experiences of trading sex or who have experienced sexualized exploitation in the Yukon.
The aim of this project is to map out the level of risk of gender-based violence (GBV) in each Yukon Community. This will inform the creation of an online risk assessment tool that has applications for how policy and decision-makers allocate resources to communities, impact assessment processes and beyond.
