Shortlisted as one of 25 finalists to receive the 2019 Governor Generals Canada History Award for Community Programming
PowerFilled Youth TO (PFYTO ) is a registered Canadian non-profit organization that was established in 2016 dedicated to engaging, empowering and inspiring children and youth.
Through mentor-ship, workshops, leadership activities, dramatic arts and community outreach initiatives, children and youth develop confidence and character while learning about self-love, social justice, black history and culture and the value of positive community engagement.
In 2019, PowerFilledYouth was shortlisted to receive the prestigious Governor Generals Canada History award for Community Engagement and also awarded the Jerome Henry Award for Community Engagement Excellence.

The PFYTO team meets on a weekly basis between October and May, examining various character development traits - their meaning, importance and relevance in today's society. Through debate, discussion, leadership activities, skills workshops and dramatic arts we examine and explore these traits as they relate to our lives and community.
Community involvement and outreach are also core aspects of our PowerFilled Youth TO. Monthly paint-nights with the local seniors homes, homeless drives, walk-a-thons, peaceful demonstrations, community clean ups and other free events are just a few of the ways in which we show our continued commitment to creating positive community engagement opportunities. Our "PILOT" Talks series allow leaders within our community to engage meaningfully with the team, sharing wisdom, knowledge and life experiences.
