Who We Are
Youth decided, Youth-led
The Black Creek Youth Initiative is a youth-led organization, that provides a safe and
inclusive space for young people in the Black Creek neighborhood in Toronto. The
organization provides a spectrum of services for youth and young adults to effectively
navigate systemic barriers and improve on their mental wellness. This Initiative was formed to address various challenges identified by young people in the community.
The BCYI offers programs that provide young people with tools and resources, needed to navigate systemic barriers and improve on their mental wellness.
The initiative was born out of the community need to engage the young people with activities and programs that promote and build set skills through professional and experiential mentorship, leadership development, and community involvement.
