The Anti-Racist Youth Lab builds capacity and collaboration amongst youth leaders who are addressing racism and its effects in communities across Canada. The program equips youth with essential skills to sustain and grow their anti-racism advocacy while building peer networks for social support and learning. The program is currently in its pilot year with a cohort of youth leaders.

Current Cohort


Youth are pillars of leadership and innovation in their communities and drive change that is essential to creating a Canada without racism. The Youth Lab program invests in the strength and ability of youth by:

  • Offering opportunities to build interpersonal, organizational, and digital skills through interactive workshops with leaders in the social good sector.
  • Providing immersive cultural learning opportunities to expand perspectives about where, when, and how anti-racism work can be done.
  • Creating a youth peer network of support that connects anti-racism work from coast to coast.
