National Anti-Racism Initiative

Summary

As Canada's largest charitable organization serving kids and teens, our Clubs open their doors to all young people, of all backgrounds, in 77 diverse communities across the country. We want to help our Clubs create even more safe spaces and empower even more youth that identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour).

Challenge

Our core values-Belonging, Respect, Encouragement and Support, Working Together, Speaking Out-are built around inclusion and we are proud of the work we do. We stand against systemic racism, prejudice, discrimination, injustice. We believe Black Lives Matter. BGC Canada is committed to change. We will continue to uphold our core values. We will continue to open our doors to all young people.

Solution

- Creating a national anti-racism program for youth that can be run at every Club across the country - Establishing micro grants for Black youth that want to create programs, initiatives, or events that support Black communities and combat racism and discrimination. - Developing anti-racism training and resources for our national team and Club staff that will ensure we incorporate anti-racism practices into all national initiatives and programs. - Running youth-led anti-racism workshops

Long-Term Impact

This work will impact and support all the kids and teens, of all backgrounds, in 775 diverse communities across the country. We want to help our Clubs create even more safe spaces and empower even more youth that identify as BIPOC. We need to provide training and tools that will help white staff and youth recognize their privilege and learn how to be effective allies.
