Youth in Black communities face multiple challenges: low self-esteem, lack of employment opportunities, neglect, lack of mentorship, negative peer influence and negative stereotyping.
The presence of positive role-models and community ambassadors are most times out of reach for these youth. In most cases, they are distracted by these factors. They end up channelling their energy towards negative outlets and experiences that are detrimental to their livelihoods
SOLUTION AND LONG-TERM IMPACT:
We understand that having the required tools in life is integral to an individual’s personal development.
This initiative will serve as a positive outlet for youth in the Black community to become accountable leaders while developing the skills required, and equipping themselves with the right approach in setting attainable life goals. The program will inspire these youth to take the initiative in becoming responsible on their set personal objectives. The 1:1 program style will establish a coaching and mentorship opportunity for these youth to ask direct questions and to be heard
- Accountable and inspiring leaders who will have a better sense of purpose to life
