About Us

Spice youth Toronto Community Initiative (SYTCI) is a grassroots youth development organization serving the Grenadian community.  Since its inception in 2010, SYTCI has raised more than $20,000 to fund educational and community development programs and partnerships both in Grenada and Toronto that are helping youth and their families enjoy a better standard of living.

Our projects are supported by annual fundraising events that are fun, family oriented opportunities for our community to come together to socialize for a cause.

Our motto:  Youth for a brighter future. Young people are the future. Supporting them as they grow strengthens our community, commerce, health and culture – the pillars of a vibrant country.

Our key focus areas are:

  • Education – we support youth in Grenada by providing books, uniforms and school supplies
  • Quality of life – by providing food, clothing and toiletries to improve the well-being of children deserving households
  • Healthcare – simply put, health is wealth. Every year we contribute towards the purchase of life saving equipment for our hospitals and healthcare centers in Grenada.

Our core values:

Community – A commitment to community building and development to ensure that the right structures are put in place, maintained and accessible to youths

Solidarity – Unity equates strength. We firmly believe that by combining our skills and talent we can effect change within our community

Dignity and Respect – Each individual has the right to be treated with respect and dignity

Fairness and Inclusion – Accepting of all individuals and ensuring that they are treated with fairness, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, culture religion, and sexuality

Excellence – A dedication to professionalism built upon best practices, and efficiency in all that we do

Collaboration – Working with community’ partners to increase and enhance access to programs and services available to youth

Leadership – Being exemplary leaders in our community and responding to the needs of those we serve with diligence and humility

Culture – Promotion of Grenadian culture especially among youths to ensure its relevance and continuity
