The For Youth Initiative raised $50,000 for post-secondary students looking to go to college, university, or job training. That’s enough for 25 scholarships.
The FYI Scholarship program, now in its 15th year, is in commemoration of Jamal Hemmings and Amon Beckles, Toronto youth who were lost to gun violence in November 2005. Jamal and Amon were participants in FYI’s daily programs and will be remembered for their positive, vibrant personalities and dance skills. The FYI Scholarship Program supports our community’s youth towards a brighter future through funding support for various forms of education including: university, college, job training, education certification, trades or an apprenticeship program.
