About Us












The Young Black Women's Project is an initiative founded by the Peel HIV/AIDS Network (PHAN).

The project is made possible by a stellar team comprised of PHAN staff members, community partners, peer leaders, and community members who share our commitment to providing safe spaces for young Black women to explore important issues.

PHAN has been a leader in the social service sector of Peel region for more than two decades. We strive to improve the lives of individuals in our community with programming and initiatives that foster a sense of belonging and inclusion.


We offer a range of tailored educational programs for diverse communities, including: a sexual health leadership course for young gay and bisexual men; a series of diverse leadership training opportunities for people living with and affected by HIV; and workshops covering a variety of topics for healthcare and social service providers and educators. 

This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Brampton Caledon Community Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast.
