Leaders of Colour is our inaugural program, a podcast, dedicating to providing a platform for youth to share the important work they do.
We feature bi-weekly interviews with racialized youth leaders from across what is currently Canada who are creating opportunities for other youth in their communities to engage in advocacy work.
Since 2019 we have featured 32 youth across Canada in 24 episodes!
