UPlift Black YOUth was created because we recognized the need for Black youth to have a safe place to share their experiences and have a community that understands their cultures and challenges. This program runs during the school year and includes 12 weekly sessions. The program runs from April 14th – June 30th at 4:00pm on Zoom every Thursday. Sign up by April 10th to be a part of our first group!

The UPlift Black YOUth program is a weekly facilitated peer support group that seeks to improve and UPlift the lives of Black YOUth in Simcoe County by:

  • Creating safe and non-judgemental spaces for Black YOUth to use their voices and express themselves
  • Building a sense of community and fostering meaningful connections and relationships
  • Empowering ideas, building confidence, and mentoring Black YOUth to step into community leadership
