For Youth Initiative

When EDT
This course has already taken place.

For 25 years, the For Youth Initiative (FYI) has been providing models, inspiration and lessons for Toronto’s youth under the simple premise that, given the chance, a proud and successful adulthood is possible for every child in York South-Weston.

Taught by ICL lead trainer, storyteller and leader within Toronto's African-Canadian community, Sandra Whiting, we're proud of our work with FYI to train over 200 Black youth in strategies and tactics for making change.

These young Black leaders and ICL are hosting a celebration of their achievement at 12 p.m. on August 13th. You can register to the event by clicking here.
