Black Student and Family Advocate Support Program

Black Student and Family Advocate Support Program

About the Program:

Funded under the Ontario Black Youth Action Plan (BYAP) Student and Family Advocates Initiative (SFA), the SFA will design, develop and deliver the highly-targeted, community-based and culturally relevant advocacy supports, tailored to the needs of Black students and families in Ottawa. 

The aim is to provide a collaborative approach to student and family advocacy by empowering Black parents and students through civic engagement and cultural brokering. This will be achieved through advocacy supports and referrals, mentorship, knowledge-building for parents and students and culturally specific relationship building.

CRSD’s SFA will deliver the services to Black youth between the ages 6-25 and their families who seek interventions to meet their educational and career/life goals.
