Candies Kotchapaw is a community builder and networker, holding Master and Bachelor degrees in Social Work from York University and a diploma in Child and Youth Work from George Brown College. While completing the Master program, Candies encountered systemic conditions that tried to prevent her from successfully completing the program. These forces included feelings of isolation in education, financial blocks, lack of mentorship and a sense that striving for greater was pointless. Candies found support in one faculty member who invested time and effort in developing her Major Research Project entitled, ‘The Politics of Social Work: Do Racialized Social Workers belong in the Practice Space of Public Policy Development?’

From this Major Research Paper, in 2016 Candies was invited to present her findings at graduate student conferences at York University at the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies, The Global Labour Research Centre and the School of Social Work’s graduate symposium. Further, Candies was a panel presenter in Seattle, Washington at the Institute for Research on Labour and Employment (IRLE). As the only black female presenter at this conference, Candies began to interrogate how to make spaces of influence in education and the broader society more accessible for the black community. It was here that the idea of creating a program that combined mentorship with capacity building began to develop. Following completion of the Master of Social Work program, Candies founded the project called Developing Young Leaders of Tomorrow, Today (DYLOTT).

This program serves the purpose of connecting participants of the program with strong mentors within the black community and non-racialized allies who have been successful at navigating systemic structures and creating access to available opportunities for marginalized people. As DYLOTT continues to evolve into a unique leadership skills development program, Candies continues to inform the program through her research into precarious work and its effects specifically on the black community. Candies has travelled to the United Kingdom, Latvia and South Korea to present her findings on precarious work to further structure DYLOTT to open career paths for the black community that has been otherwise inaccessible.

Candies is always willing to talk about her experiences and the necessity of supporting a unique program such as DYLOTT.

Recently, Ms. Kotchapaw was on our show.

During our conversation, Ms. Kotchapaw talked about:

– Some her background including why she decided to pursue social work as her passion
– The importance of her family in her journey
– The qualities of her mother that she has in her
– Some of her professional accomplishments including achieving her MSW and the some of the challenges that Black Canadians face with the social service system
– The story behind DYLOTT
– The importance Senator Wanda Bernard has had on her journey
– Some DYLOTT successes
– The effect that Covid19 is having on Black Toronto youth

The Jahmeyka Project is a non-profit organization run by licensed social workers and funded solely by donations, seeking to directly benefit social services and communities in Jamaica.

The Jahmeyka Project origins began twenty years ago when Dr. Leslie Yaffa went to Jamaica as a Master’s of Social Work student. She became a college professor and created a graduate-level course that offered students an international social work experience focused on community engagement in Jamaica. After 5 years of visiting multiple agencies, providing community service to selected agencies, and experiencing the Jamaican social service culture, it was clear to Dr. Yaffa that the work, partnerships and connections to the communities had to go beyond the classroom.

Today, the Jahmeyka Project utilizes a service-learning and educational approach to integrate with our partnerships in Jamaica. We build on critical and reflective thinking, community service, partnership responsibility and inclusion. Through knowledge mobilization and partnerships, we are continuing to build a non-profit that will be open to all helping professions in future years who want to engage in professional trainings, workshops, field placements (into Jamaican organizations), outreach and research in Jamaica.

Beyond our work on the ground, The Jahmeyka Project supports organizations in the Kingston, Jamaica area who have identified needs in their communities for goods such as school supplies and hygiene products.. We also donate funds to agencies for their operating costs that are deemed to be most in need based upon our application process.

The Jahmeyka Project’s mission is to enhance community partnerships through a collaborative knowledge exchange as an ally with social services in Jamaica.

The Jahmeyka Project’s vision is to foster inclusion of social services through education alongside helping professionals by engaging in mutual partnerships and communities in the Caribbean.

Recently, members of The Jahmeyka Project were live on our show.

During our conversation, they talked about:

– Some of each of the ladies background and how they all met
– Where did each of the ladies love for Jamaica come from and their memories of meeting each other for the first time
– The story behind The Jahmeykah Project including getting non-profit status in Canada and the United States
– The initial response of Jamaicans to The Jameykah Project
– The status of social service agencies in Jamaica at this time
– The first “YES!” moment being part of The Jameykah Project
– Have they receive any pushback
– Have the challenges for Jamaicans changed over the years
– The impact of Covid19 on Jamaica, the social services agencies based there and The Jahmeykah Project
– Their vision for the next five years
– The state of fatherhood in Jamaica
