We had an incredible time visiting our partners this year and connecting our young people to professionals who were able to share their stories and provide insight to the work they do. Please check out this video that recaps our experience during the week!
We took a visit to Vic College and had the opportunity to not only explore the amazing space but connect with some great people. Our youth were excited to learn about the different opportunities within Victoria College and get a better understanding of life on campus.
For the first time since thepandemic, we were back in personand it felt familiar. Wequickly realized how much wemissed the hustle and bustle ofthe morning busses, the studentsgathering into the assembly halllooking for their friends and thensending them off to their classesas the Mentors led the way.
Please take some time to experience the summer through this report!
Pat Saul was a long serving Board Member and repeated Chair of Success Beyond Limits (SBL). Pat’s commitment to education and support of young people across the city was extraordinary. Her work in Jane and Finch led to ground breaking achievements that were always rooted in the community through the work of SBL. As we continue to remember Pat’s legacy, we think about her impact and love for the work we do.
This summer has been an unprecedented time for so many families as we continued to provide supports which include our flag ship summer program. Our report will highlight so much of what has happened over the summer and how we have done this work virtually.

We recently presented, in collaboration with other community groups across the city, a powerful know your rights event focusing on Anti-Black racism in the education system during remote learning. Some of our venerable youth have been asking us to provide support and advocacy during this quarantine. This platform was an opportunity to share the same resources by partnering with Black Led agencies to an audience of 116 people. Pivoting our work during a time where we cannot gather in spaces means it’s even more important for us to empower our youth through a strong anti-Black racism strategy.
