Empowering Dreams: The NewLife Program by RYP

Focusing on Descendants of the Black diaspora, participants aged between 8 and 15 years (Dreamers) are mentored by Ambassadors between the ages of 16 and 24, all centered around four powerful pillars that RYP employs to strengthen and support communities: Education, Economic Empowerment, Mentoring, and Health & Wellness. The uniqueness of The NewLife Program lies in providing financial support through bursaries and scholarships, coupled with growth and learning opportunities for both the Dreamers and Ambassadors.
