BBBS creates individual and group mentoring relationships amongst adults and youth.
Mentorship is a two-way, learning and development partnership where the young person needs are placed at the center.
The mentee and the mentor are matched based on similar interests and similar life experiences. The mentor and the mentee meet once a week for a couple of hours and hang out. During their hangout the match can participate in activities that both the mentee and the mentor enjoy such as, board games, movies, video games, arts and crafts, dancing, hiking, biking, swimming etc.

The Non-Binary Colour Collective was founded by a pair of emerging artist pals who both feel exhausted by the Toronto-art-scene. Experiencing the lack of support and recognition of artists on the margins (who are usually left struggling for visibility and access in local arts), they responded by creating a group to focus on 2SQTBIPOC artists, raise funding and host community events.
Our first event was the 2SQTBIPOC Arts/Zine Fair which took place on April 27, 2019 at Tranzac Club. Our goal in creating this event was to subvert what we tend to see at local zine fair and art events, and instead build an event that centers queer people of colour and creators on the margins. We are planning another arts/zine fair for Winter 2019!
