The Cultural Mentoring Program is new and uniquely geared towards encouraging Black Youths to become socially responsible and productive community members in the Canadian environment. The program aim is to create mentorship relationships focused on a kaleidoscope of Caribbean and African cultures, history, Carnival arts, and business, micro-ventures and Caribbean and African Diaspora experiences.
Our program consists of three distinct stages: Foundation, Transition and Actualization. These stages will open the minds of the mentees and provide them with a window into their history and culture. This will help them understand and realize they have an origin rich in culture and tradition. The approach also introduces the importance of business, science and technology, wealth creation and familiarity with the Canadian justice system as well as community stability.
The Black Icons we choose to encapsulate into the program are men and women who faced unique challenges. Nevertheless, they were motivated and inspired along the way and overcame adversity to become remarkable individuals.
At its core, this Cultural Mentorship Program will transform the participants into CAN DO individuals! They will embrace the challenges faced and understand they can make a difference individually and collectively through hard work, commitment and determination.
