Our Funded Agencies are Awesome: a Spotlight on Alisha Deonanan

In June at the 2016/17 Annual General Meeting, we recognized several outstanding individuals with the Bhayana Family Foundation Awards. These awards are peer-nominated honours that recognize extraordinary contributions made by front-line staff at our funded agencies. This recognition is made possible by the generous support of Madan and Raksha M. Bhayana and the Bhayana Family Foundation.

Nine individuals received awards this year, and we’d like to highlight one of the award winners.

Meet Alisha.

Opportunity Alert! Big Brothers Big Sisters Peel Seeks Adult Mentors from the Black Community

The Ontario Black Youth Action Plan (OBYAP) is a brand new, province-wide program for Black youth, which will support up to 25 locally developed mentorship initiatives across the province. There is a need for positive role models for Black youth not only across the province, but, more specifically, across Peel Region.

Black children and youth represent 44 per cent (70,700) of the 116,225 Black residents in Peel Region. Research shows that Black youth in Peel have little access to positive role models. What better way to combat that than with mentorship programs within the Black community?

If you’re an adult within the Black community and you want to have a massive impact on Black youth, and ultimately make a real difference, this incredible opportunity is for you. Here’s what Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel has to tell you about how you can get involved in their initiative:

Ink Movement Mississauga Develops Young, Artistic Talent Through Time Capsule Conference

Yesterday, we found out what Girls Empowerment Movement has been doing for youth in our community thanks to Youth in Action Grants.

Whether or not you got to check out yesterday’s post, these grants are an opportunity focused on youth-led projects to address community issues in Peel Region. In 2016, $15,000 was funded by United Way of Peel Region and distributed to 10 youth-led projects through this granting opportunity.

Saturday is International Youth Day, and to celebrate, we wanted to highlight some of the incredible projects youth in our community implemented in the past year.

Here’s what Ink Movement Mississauga has been up to!
