We’re back with after school programming this fall! Kuumba After School is a virtual engagement that allows youth to explore new artistic mediums and build healthy peer relationships. The program is an opportunity for youth to chill, create and learn in a non-traditional setting. 

Working alongside multidisciplinary artist and seasoned youth facilitator Chason Yeboah-Brown, youth will use art as a way to build a holistic sense of self. Each session will focus on exploring identity, problem-solving, leadership, resilience and pride in Black history.

This program is free and open to youth (12-18) across the GTA. Program runs virtually every Monday.

Each session, participants will be mailed the supplies and materials necessary to participate.
