This year, we awarded three scholarships to graduating first-generation students and launched our first tutoring program. We also delivered and expanded our fourth annual Afrocentric Summer Mentorship & Enrichment Program. Our new tutoring program provided one-on-one support to students from grades six to ten in the areas of math, science, and English every week. Building on our track record of positive student impact through mentorship, in the fall we introduced our first School-Year Afrocentric Mentorship & Enrichment Program. During the summer months, we gathered weekly to learn from mentors, guest speakers and one another in live virtual sessions. Once the school year started, we transitioned to gathering on a monthly basis. We hosted sessions on a wide range of academic subjects from neuroscience to civics to music and each unique workshop allowed us to better appreciate how Afrocentric principles, such as Nia and Ujima, could be applied to our lives. We’re proud to be able to now provide year-round culturally-affirming academic support to Toronto’s Black Youth!
