About Strength in Structure Focus Groups

Focus groups will take place via Zoom and will touch on Black Youth Employment Outcomes.

These focus groups will provide opportunities for Black serving and Black led organizations based in and around Ontario, Alberta, and Nova Scotia to share, and also learn from other service providers and community organizations, their experiences with respect to delivering services/supports to Black youth.

It is our belief that your organization has extensive expertise and experience in workforce development as it relates to Black youth. Having a core understanding of both systemic racism and anti-Black racism is crucial to the research and implementation strategy we are proposing
