Black Youth in Technology, Engineering and Science
My Future is brighter as I press on past my fear!
The most important thing is that I believe in myself and that I surround myself with positive influences, paving a path for a better tomorrow for myself and the next generation.

Our community depends on it
The BYTES Network was formed to create a community of organizations supporting Black Youth in STEM in Toronto and other municipalities.
The black community is not represented in proportion to the population in STEM occupations. There are certain disciplines where the black population is virtually non-existence.
We believe the lack of representation in STEM occupations is reflected in poor economic growth and high rates of unemployment in our black communities. We exist to change that reality
Our mission is to:
Inspire, encourage and empower black students into a better tomorrow through the enhancement of stem related training & mentorship programs
Increase the pipeline of students pursuing science in K-12, Post-Secondary and Post-Doctoral Research opportunities
Reduce the barriers and provide role-models, mentors and support
