It is with this deep understanding of the local issues communities face that our strategies on overcoming barriers via effective interventions, signposting and networking stand.
Our vision is to create a world where Black youth have equal access to opportunity and are empowered to reach their fullest potential. We strive to build a movement of Black-focused and Black-led communities that create pathways for success and a brighter future. We focus on empowering Black youth to develop skills, knowledge and leadership qualities that enhance their opportunities for success, while also working to empower and enable the wider community to thrive, independently from systemic and structural disadvantages that limit opportunities for positive development. We are committed to creating an environment that values diversity, inclusion and equity for Black people in all aspects of life.
