Black Talents is a not-for-profit youth organization founded in year 2018 with a sole vision to inspire and build Black African, Caribbean, North American and multi-racial youth who identify with their Black ancestry between the ages of 13-23 years for career success.
Our vision is to build and develop talented and successful Black Leaders for North America.
Inspired for greater success
A heart for People
There is great under-representation and underemployment of Blacks in the workforce
The relative absence of Blacks and Black culture in school curricula in a positive manner
The high rate of unemployment among Black youth and the high level of poverty in the Black population serve to make them vulnerable to low self-esteem and other mental health issues
Black youth continue to be disproportionately streamed into lower education tracks as a result of both individual prejudice and systemic factors. Racial stereotypes held by teachers play a significant role in the streaming of Black students.
Many Black students receive inadequate advice on their academic choices and pathways, and by no means are encouraged to realize their full potential.
