MENTOR Canada supports Black Business and Professional Association
We were excited to see our work featured in the Caribbean Camera (October 28th, 2020). We were also featured in the Starbucks Stories (October 21st 2020).
Along with our partners at Starbucks, the Black Business Professionals Association and Say It Loud, we are thrilled to invite you to participate in the launch of the MentorME Program on November 25th and 26th at 7:00PM
In order to disrupt anti-black racism and increase connections and social supports for Black youth, we are building a customized mentoring approach with and for the Black community in Canada. We are excited to collaborate with our partners to expand access to mentoring to help Black youth fulfill their potential.
Mentoring is supported by research as a high-impact, low cost intervention and can help youth bridge to future supports and new possibilities for employment and education. Mentoring relationships ensure continuation of essential emotional support, connection, and stability that a young person needs in a time of uncertainty and upheaval-- sometimes providing the critical lifeline and connection to hope and the future.
Now more than ever, we need caring adults to step up as mentors and support Black youth to achieve their career, academic and life goals.
