For Youth Initiative

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

For Youth Initiative

For Youth Initiative (FYI) is committed to creating healthy communities by providing supports to youth living in underserved and marginalized neighbourhoods in Toronto. What began as a community space for disengaged youth in Weston-Mount Dennis, has grown into a multiservice agency that offers an array of programs to thousands of Toronto youth in multiple low-income areas of the city.

Shaneeza Ally is a thought-leader and advocate for youth programs in Toronto who is building up marginalized young people to realize their own dreams. FYI was awarded this grant to attend Stanford School of Business’s Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders.
