BTC Be The Change

Serving Peel Region, Simcoe, the GTA and offering services virtually!

The organization originated in 2020 to support the needs of youth through the COVID pandemic. BTC has provided virtual services for Black girls across the GTA to develop their sense of identity, self esteem, and inform educational pathways and planning.

As, BTC Be the Change is an early stage grassroots organization, we have secured trusteeship from CEE Centre for Young Black Professionals to build capacity in service delivery.


All of our services are provided by highly qualified professionals from a holistic, anti-Black racism, client-centered, strengths-based approach.
