Black Youth School Success Initiative (BYSSI)
The Black Youth School Success Initiative (BYSSI) is a new pilot program for Black youth in grades six 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.
If you’re serious about planning your future, consider this intensive 11-week program.

"I feel that it was a fruitful program, especially for newcomers who have the qualifications but do not have the necessary exposure. It opened doors to volunteer work, which is a very essential part of the job-seeking process. One thing that really touched me was that every participant was given individual attention and motivated in accordance to her respective interests/fields. In future, it would be more beneficial if more non-profit organisations and young entrepreneurs are invited, which will engage more youth and give them much-needed direction in their respective fields."
