The Somali Youth Support Project (SYSP) is a Somali community driven project operating out of Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre. The goal of SYSP is to foster the health and integration of Somali youth living in the Pinecrest-Queensway catchment area by building on assets and partnerships in the community. The project is guided by an advisory committee consisting of Somali community members and local service providers.
SYSP programs include a Youth Advocacy Group (ages 16 to 21), Leadership and Life Skills Training (ages 13 to 19), Literacy Programming (ages 6 to 12) and a Recreation Drop In. The SYSP also organizes an annual gala fundraiser and a number of community celebrations and special outings each year.
