30 Under 30 & The Tamil Youth Fellowship Launch

30 Under 30 is an annual recognition that focuses on acknowledging and promoting young talents and leaders within our Tamil community. Each year 30 community leaders under the age of 30 are selected to be spotlighted for their contributions and hard work throughout a vast array of fields. This is not an award but a recognition of a diverse cross section of rising stars in our community. For 2022, we will be focusing on spotlighting 30 Women Leaders within our community.

The Tamil Youth Fellowship is a youth leadership development program seeking to build the next generation of Tamil public servants through a 12-week paid internship at the City of Toronto with mentorship, training, and individual community project opportunities.

This event is organized in collaboration with Tamil Canadian Centre for Civic Action (TCCCA), Tamils in Public Service (TiPS), and Urban Alliance on Race Relations (UARR).
