About Canahari Summer School

    There is a need in our community to get our children and youths involved and become active members of our society. Canahari Multidisciplinary Summer Program is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide education and social programs and opportunities for school-aged children and youths of African descent (Black) from minoritized communities. This organization provides education, STEM, Arts, and culturally relevant programs to CASS students during CASS camp in July and August. Typically, CASS runs in July & August of every year, and Winter workshops in February during the reading break. CASS has received support from local, provincial, and national organizations such as The Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan, the Community Initiative Funds, and the Canadian Periodical Funds. We welcome partnerships with organizations with immense experience in providing services and programs for adolescents and youth.
