Black Women in Motion is a grassroots, youth-led initiative that helps young women transition from adolescence into adulthood.

Our programs help young women develop new skills and forge a path for a promising future.

Founded in 2013 and based in Toronto (Canada), we are dedicated to supporting girls and women to overcome barriers and reach their true potential through educating, inspiring and empowering them to be agents and leaders in their communities.
