On Thursday, April 18th, 2019 From 9:30am - 2:30pm, we are hosting the Design Your Future; Black Youth Legacy Project at York University. This year, we are joining forces with flightunit, led by Christoff Kyere and his team as well as York University’s Roots 4 Change and YouthRex to create a unique opportunity for young black males to have a sustainable impact on their futures. Using a design thinking approach, participants will be presented with a challenge and be given time and mentor support to help design a solution. Students will present their ideas to a panel of professionals for questions and feedback. The conference will allow youth to take on a solutions- based approach to community challenges. With this leadership opportunity, youth will develop as emerging leaders and change-makers. Participants will be invited to consider the challenge as it relates to poverty, anti-black racism, infrastructure and access. The end goal is to help eliminate barriers to success for black youth and families and deliver solutions for more equitable, harmonious communities.
