A program for our youth rooted in the deep belief that every young person has potential and value and deserves respect and a safe space to be themselves. The affection between peers is evident the minute you walk through the door. One youth, in particular, caused quite a stir when he debuted his new haircut. I learned that he was a newcomer to Canada and his parents were looking for a safe space for him to make friends when they found Re: Soul. Well done, parents; Mission completed! High Fives, Hugs and something cooking in the kitchen fills the room; for some teens, this is home.

This is an opportunity to celebrate, honour and re.ect on the stories, experiences and accomplishments of Black Canadians.
