August 2012 saw the continuation of Spice Youth Toronto (CI)’s commitment to support youth initiatives not only here in Toronto but in Grenada. In June 2012, Mr. Dwight Gibbs manager of the Grenada Youth Centre reached out to the organization for assistance in procuring a projector and screen to facilitate youth programming at the Centre.
The Executive team of SYTCI was only too happy to make this wish a reality. The items were presented by President, Trisha Mitchell and Secretary Marie Benjamin, Mr. Dwight Gibbs in a ceremony held at the Grenada National Museum in August 2012 as part of the Grenada Diaspora Homecoming celebrations.
In thanking the organization, Mr. Gibbs highlighted the benefits of the items to the youth being served at the facility.
