About the Program:

Our Black Youth Impact program is a culturally-grounded psychoeducational and social programming initiative aimed at empowering and fostering the collective resilience and well-being of Black youth aged 15 to 21 (Grades 9 - 12). Through a hybrid model incorporating virtual and in-person sessions, workshops, discussions, local business visits, hands-on learning experiences, and one-on-one mentorship opportunities, we strive to equip participants with essential leadership and entrepreneurial skills.


With the invaluable support of our partners and collaborators in the region, we are committed to creating a nurturing environment where young individuals can thrive and develop the confidence and capabilities needed to succeed in both personal and professional spheres.
