Are you a Black high school student in Saskatchewan looking for academic support, mentorship, and career readiness? Or do you know anyone who is? The Student Support Learning Program (SSLP) is coming to Saskatchewan through a partnership between the Federation of Black Canadians and Black in Sask
The SSLP offers free after-school programming and mentorship to Black youth in SK, with workshops on financial literacy, mental wellness, anti-racism, and understanding job market needs. Each session starts with a 1-hour workshop where students can learn skills that will help them achieve academic success both inside and outside of the classroom.

If students need academic support, they will receive complimentary access to tutoring services in any subject area.
Transportation support will be available for students, and the program will be delivered in a hybrid format in Regina, SK. Plus, students who complete the program will have the opportunity to apply for scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $6,000.
