The York Region Alliance of African Canadian Communities cordially invites you to join us for 2nd Annual Black History celebration event where along with our allies and supporters, we as an African Canadian community will be “Celebrating the Success of Our Black Families in YR”

Our theme this year is "Recognize and Promote Black Youth Excellence through Mentoring"

A panel of Black York Region Influencers, who have inspired and been mentors for our communities, will share their Journeys.

“Bridging the Past with the Present…Navigating the Present into the Future”

(YRAACC)

During the event YRAACC will be launching their Sankofa Youth Mentorship Program. The Program is a Life Skills program Rooted in an African Centered Rites of Passage Process, utilizing the Nguzo Saba (Seven Principles)

There will be many opportunities to network with many York Region public service agencies, and community organizations, and hear from dynamic performers.

We will be catering for the entire family. There will be a Black Marketplace, Drumming, other cultural Performances and a Children’s area for your young ones. Food and refreshments will be available.

Come and be inspired, learn, share, and connect.
