BLACK YOUTH SCHOOL SUCCESS INITIATIVE (BYSSI)
Supporting black youth with achieving their educational goals.
The Black Youth School Success Initiative (BYSSI) is a new pilot program for Black youth in grades 6 to 12.
An initiative of the Peel District School Board’s “We Rise Together” action plan, this program brings together Black-led organizations, schools and mainstream community agencies to provide support for Black youth in the Peel Region. Delivered through a culturally appropriate lens, while understanding the lived experiences of Black youth, the program provides support in academics, mentorship, motivation, self-esteem, cultural and self-discovery.
