WHO WE ARE

Who

Success With Age and Guidance (S.W.A.G.) is a youth-led grassroots organization founded in 2011. Our vision is to build community and youth engagement in Peel Region and uplift youth to define and obtain success for themselves.

What We Do

Success With Age and Guidance Program is a 13-week program which consists of weekly programming and mentorship to youth specifically racialized male youth. Through our program youth are able to access and expand their support and social networks through civic engagement, program facilitation, mentorship, education, community events and workshops. In addition, we celebrate our youth yearly by hosting a celebration event where we recognize youth contributions and offer support with a scholarship bursary award.

Why

Youth more specifically racialized male youth face multiple complex barriers in society. These barriers cause youth to grow in isolation and without guidance or support which forces them to make decisions on their own that may be detrimental to their well being and their future aspirations. Through our program we aim to provide youth with a safe space for mentorship, creative dialogue, learning and skill development.
