Facilitating New Beginnings

our services

For Youth

At AGATA Resource Centre we recognize the growing challenges for Black youth to maintain their mental well-being in today’s world. Having to navigate the impact of anti-Black racism and its intersections, increasing expectations and societal pressure, and having to find ways to make ends meet during a global pandemic. That’s why we offer a safe space for youth to come together, express openly, and engage in activities that support one’s journey to better mental health.

01.

Youth WellnessWa-Pa Po

Wa Pa-Po is an Ubuntu word meaning “come together”.

Group sessions where participants get to press pause and unwind, while learning the best practices for developing healthy habits that support their mental well-being. Topics are structured around the real-life issues affecting our communities. How can we strengthen our communities by strengthening our own selves?

02.

Transforming Justice

This program explores the possibilities of transformative anti-Oppressive frameworks for youth. With topics ranging from anti-Black racism, Indigenous perspectives, Islamophobia, the justice system, and supporting LGBTQ+ youth, participants learn to unpack, challenge, and re-imagine life’s oppressive architecture.
