About Us

Established in 2006, the Eritrean Youth Collective (EYC) exists to provide increased communication and collaboration among different segments of the Eritrean community in Toronto with the aim of facilitating dialogue around pertinent issues affecting youth today. We offer programming that help to enhance formal educational learning, examine cultural norms through arts and opportunities to develop hands on skills for Eritrean youth. We engage with youth via social media and regular bi-weekly e-mail newsletter known as Opps & Updates to provide opportunities for learning, employment and promote events in the community, especially those by youth-led organizations.

We strive to be a resource to our youth and the broader Eritrean community of Toronto, to create a vibrant and supportive community.
