The Afghan Youth Engagement and Development Initiative (AYEDI) is recruiting mentors and mentees for our Afghan Youth Mentorship Program, Forge Your Future. This program is for Afghan youth aged 15 to 21 who live or go to school in east Toronto. The goal of the program is to facilitate life skills for Afghan youth who live in Neighbourhood Improvement Areas who may be at risk for exposure to anti-social behaviours. While open to all genders, we particularly encourage male-identifying youth to sign up. Funding is provided through the City of Toronto.

Youth will gain skills and competencies to:

  • Enhance their resiliency and build their capacity to pursue higher education and employment opportunities;
  • Improve access to Afghan-Canadian mentorswho share similar lived experiences;
  • Build social and emotional wellness by providing safe spaces for youth to discuss issues specific to our community

We are also looking for Afghan-identifying mentors who can share their knowledge and wisdom based on their personal and professional experiences and would like to volunteer 2-3 hours per month during the 2020-2021 academic year (September-April).
