We are hosting the Design Your Future: Black Youth Legacy Conference

at York University. We are thrilled to announce that the conference is part

of a 3-year anti-racism strategy funded by Canadian Heritage- Government

of Canada and is part of Connecting the Dots, a national strategy aimed at

connecting the African Caribbean diaspora across Canada. #FUTURETHINKING

This year, we are joining forces with Youthrex to create a unique opportunity

for our black youth to have a sustainable impact on their futures. Using a

design thinking approach, participants will be presented with a challenge

and be given time and mentor support to help develop a solution.

Students will present their ideas to a panel of professionals for questions

and feedback. The conference will allow youth to take on a solutions- based

approach to community challenges. With this leadership opportunity,

youth will develop as emerging leaders and change-makers.

Participants will be invited to consider the challenge as it relates to their

collective experiences as black youth in the GTA. The end goal is to help

eliminate barriers to success for black youth and families and deliver

solutions for more equitable, harmonious communities.

We are asking educators and parents to bring their students and children to be part of this important event.

This type of endeavour delivers a message to our young people

that they are a part of a village of caring adults who are invested in their

futures. We believe that this type of support is critical to the success of our

future leaders.
