Black History Youth Awards


The need for Black History Youths Awards arose from the realisation and need that within the black community in Tees Valley some young people are facing various challenges based on their circumstances and situations in which they find themselves. 


This dinner is aimed at celebrating achievement of black youths, promoting and celebrating positive role models within and outside of the community, and supporting “It’s You and Me mentoring project” that aim to address the specific needs of the young people.  This awards will celebrate successes rather than focusing on negative stories and images.  The African adage “It takes a village to raise a child” is the ethos behind this initiative.


The awards will provide the young people with an opportunity to experience what they sometimes think is unachievable, listen and meet with positive role models from various communities.


This prestigious black tie event will recognise and celebrate the importance of hard work, cultural diversity and showcase efforts of black youths but also provide a platform to support our mentoring project Its You & Me.  The funds raised on the evening will be used to develop the mentoring project which will continue to encourage and support young people. The awards will also recognise individuals, organisations and businesses that support these communities.
