PROJECTS

For over 20 years, the National Congress of Black Women Foundation has delivered programs to support Black youth. Some of the programs include Summer, Leadership Programs for Youth-at-Risk and Social Justice/ Anti-Racism Symposiums. These programs help youth realize their full potential. They also learn the importance of making correct choices to help themselves and those around them, highlighting the importance of education in their life.

In the last decade, during Black History Month, the organization has continued to partner with the Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam and Maple Ridge  high schools to launch and deliver Social Justice/Anti-Racism programs. In 2020, our organization began collaborating with the Vancouver schools to deliver a Social Justice/Anti-Racism Youth Summit.
