We at Find Your Path are so excited to announce that this summer we will run our fourth annual Afrocentric Summer Mentorship Program virtually! The program will run for seven weeks this summer, with seven live group sessions on Saturdays July 10, 17, 24, 31 and August 7, 14, 21 from 11am to 3pm.
Through hearing from successful Black leaders and professionals, engaging in conversations on Afrocentric themes, and bonding with Black mentors pursuing post-secondary education, we aim to increase participants’ academic confidence and personal resilience and to establish positive and long-lasting mentorship networks with successful Black role models. This program is intended primarily for youth living in the Greater Toronto Area ages 12 to 16 (or grades 7-10).
Each week, we will focus on a different principle (e.g. Kujichagulia/self-determination or Kujieleza/self-expression) and our discussion of each principle will be grounded in a particular discipline (e.g. history or chemistry). Weekly live sessions will include an interactive presentation by a Black leader or professional followed by group discussions and activities. Participants will also be able to engage with their paired mentor during the week.
