The upcoming African Heritage Month event combines the opportunity to mingle, network and hear from young African Nova Scotians paving the way in their professional fields. Join us on the first Saturday of this celebratory month as we hear from and lift up youth in the community pursuing leadership roles in fields that have historically left out African Nova Scotian voices.

Everyone is welcome to attend, including little ones. The gathering will start with light food and the chance to speak with organizations that support young people pursuing careers in music, health, politics and other fields. We will then hear from a panel of young African Nova Scotians on professional paths that have been paved by those who came before them.

Please join us to celebrate the past and present of young African Nova Scotians leading through excellence while we create space to hear from organizations that want to support future leaders in the community.
