ABOUT US

The Black Community Resource Centre (BCRC) takes a comprehensive approach to meeting the needs of English-speaking youth. We refer to this approach as the “Holistic Project.” In adopting this approach to community service, we recognize that youth have many needs (e.g., socio-cultural, educational, and economic, etc.) that must be addressed in order for youth to achieve their maximum potential in our society.
