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

Tropicana Community Services

Tropicana Community Services is a Toronto-based multi-service organization, providing youth, newcomers, people of Black and Caribbean heritage and others in need with opportunities and alternatives that lead to success and positive life choices.  They provide culturally appropriate programs ranging from counselling and child care to educational and employment services and youth development. Tropicana’s Athletic Excellence delivers an inclusive, affordable, structured sports/recreation program that fosters a healthy, active lifestyle for youth, while also teaching them valuable leadership and life skills. The Afro-Caribbean population served by Tropicana is disproportionately affected by health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke, and mental health, which makes the availability of this program all the more important.
