We are the ones we've been waiting for.
We are the change that we seek."
Extending a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated/supported our fundraiser for RTD Remedial Reading and Homework Center in Jamaica. With your help we were able to raise more than $3500, as well as spend down desktop, laptop, playpen, fans, toys, school supplies, etc. Check out this short thank you video all the way from Westmoreland, Jamaica.
History, Culture and Heritage
The PFYTO team meets weekly 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. The PFYTO team continues to show their 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.
