VIRTUAL AFROCENTRIC SUMMER MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
We at Find Your Path are so excited to announce that this summer we will run our third annual Afrocentric Summer Mentorship Program- with a virtual twist! The program will run for four weeks in August 2020 with live online sessions on Saturdays, August 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29. The live launch session on August 1st will take place from 12:00pm to 2:00pm and each other session will take place from 12:00pm to 1:30pm.
Through hearing from successful Black leaders, engaging in conversations on Afrocentric themes, and bonding with Black mentors pursuing post-secondary education, we aim to increase participants’ personal and academic resilience and to establish positive and long-lasting mentorship networks with successful Black role models. This program is intended primarily for youth ages 12 to 17 (or grades 7-12).
Each week, we will focus on a different African principle (e.g. Umoja/unity or Imani/faith) and our discussion of each principle will be grounded in a particular discipline (e.g. art or epidemiology). Weekly Saturday sessions will include an interactive presentation by an influential Black leader in Toronto, followed by group discussions and activities. Participants will also meet with their paired mentor during the week.
