Upcoming Programs

The Gathering

Calling all Black youth 14 and older!

Malton Neighbourhood Services’ Black Family Support Program provides culturally informed services for Black families within the Region of Peel. We offer a variety of programs and services for black children, youth, and families. This is a multifaceted program that includes: drop-in play-based learning experiences, parent support, individual and family counselling, youth programs and systems navigation. The BFSP aims to foster resiliency in the black community.

The Gathering is an environment that encourages fun and discussions that engages and empowers black young people to be part of a solution-driven process addressing societal issues that impact them and their peers. Additionally, incorporating 2SLGBTQ+ education to combat the stigma the black 2SLGBTQ+ community faces. The Gathering is a low-barrier drop-in, which is comprised of both formal and informal programming. Activities include guest speakers, workshops, guided conversations, recreational activities, open discussions and more!
