Black Youth Helpline serves all youth and specifically responds to the need for a Black youth specific service, positioned and resourced to promote access to professional, culturally appropriate support for youth, families and schools. Services are driven by the voices of participants who call the “Helpline.” Can I help you? Are therefore not simply spoken words. We are passionate about making a difference. To help prevent social, emotional and psychological breakdown and ultimately violence and crime in the youth population.To ensure access to needed professional assessment, intervention, services and supports for youth and families. BYH focuses on understanding and addressing the root causes of problems.To help maintain youth in the regular school system or to guide youth in other development education activities. Provide a culturally appropriate and relevant nucleus of professional and social support for youth, families and schools. Bridging cultures, reaching youth, impact change.

What we'll deliver:

  • Multicultural Youth Helpline & Services
  • Professional, culturally relevant youth and family assessments and intervention
  • Stay-In-School Initiatives
  • Parent & Family Support
  • Referral Assistance

Why it's a great idea:

Productive futures for Leytonstone children and youth. Primary prevention of social, psychological breakdown in communities through a focus on education, health and community development. Respect for the inherent worth of each person regardless of their opportunities and challenges. Education as a key foundation for positive citizenship and success in life. Our resultant belief is that ‘no child’ or “youth” should be excluded or dismissed from our schools.
