Our board is comprised of volunteers who are dedicated to BCSPEI’s vision, mission, and values.
Our Board of Directors
Claire Byrne is an Afro Latinx woman from Charlottetown.
She is a worker, a student, and a community advocate. With the many roles she plays in her family and community she is so excited to start this role with the Black Cultural Society of PEI as the Interim President of the board of directors.
Alongside Tamara Steele, ED of BCS, and with the support of many Island organizations, Claire helped facilitate the first iteration of the BCS BIPOC Girls Group back in 2020 and she is so happy to watch the youth group expand and to continue to deepen her relationship with BCS.
Claire is proud to be a Black Islander and so honoured to be on the Board of BCSPEI.
Keyshawn Bonamy hails from Nassau, Bahamas. He moved to PEI to study at the University of Prince Edward in 2016 and has since called the Island his home.
As the current Executive Director of the Voluntary Resource Council, Keyshawn has worked consistently within the non-profit sector on the Island and has seen how the Island’s rapidly changing demographics are also influencing the sector itself.
Keyshawn is proud to be on the Board of the BCSPEI and looks forward to contributing his skills and experiences to the organization.
