HigherLove Movement to Empower Black Youth
On Sunday July 5th 2020, the much anticipated Mystic Moon Yoga experience will be taking place at the Lmnts Outdoor Studio in Toronto. Higher Love founder and instructor Vonette Forde curated this event specifically to help individuals relieve tensions and emotional intensity while staying connected to the Universe via Mind, Body and Spirit and tapping into the power within.
Proceeds raised at the event as well as through this page will be donated to Powerfilled Youth TO (PFYTO) in efforts to help uplift youth in the black community and help empower black children in the fight against anti-black racism.
PowerFilled Youth TO is a registered Canadian non-profit organization that was established in 2016 dedicated to engaging, empowering and inspiring black children and youth by providing valuable, accessible leadership programs.
Through mentorship, workshops, 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 while gaining appreciation for the value of positive community engagement.

Recent cuts to education have resulted in the TDSB Community Use of School space program being cancelled, which had provided PFYTO's facility space. Overhead costs were previously funded independently in conjunction with TDSB's subsidy. In addition, many of the children and youth in this program benefit greatly from transportation, program equipment and materials, snacks and other operating costs being fully absorbed by the PowerFilledYouth Program Director. Due to several factors, including the Covid-19 pandemic, covering these costs independently has become increasingly more challenging.
Our goal is to raise a minimum $5000 to be allocated directly towards operating and overhead costs of PowerFilled Youth and other non-profit organizations focused on empowering and uplifting black children and youth. Thank you in advance for your support!
