Caribbean African Canadian Social Services
We provide culturally specific programs that address the behavioural and emotional needs of children as they strive to develop a positive attitude towards school and their community. These programs also offer support to parents, who may need guidance in managing their child’s social and interpersonal development.
Our current children’s programs are:
- Leaders in Partnership (L.I.P.) Program
- Stop Now and Plan (SNAP) Program
- Kambi Ya Watoto Summer Camp
- Individual Counselling
Leaders In Partnership Program (LIP)
The Leaders In Partnership (LIP) Program is a lunch time, school-based 10 week skills development and awareness training program for children aged 7 to 12 years who are at risk of suspension or expulsion due to presenting with challenging behaviours.
Through group counselling, discussion, and self-reflection, children learn to redefine themselves as leaders andimprove their relationships with the school community and beyond.
CAFCAN Social Services Kambi Ya Watoto – Africentric Camp
July 10 – August 16, 2018
In its first year of operation, this children’s summer camp demonstrated its potential.
In partnership with the Toronto District School Board, the 6 week camp creates a space for children to learn African drumming and dance, create cultural arts and crafts, play Oware, visit Black owned businesses and attend weekly outings so that they can gain exposure to the world around them.
The children learn about Black history with a view to strengthening a strong sense of self and cultural identity
