Media Advisory - Find your Cause with the Toronto Youth Cabinet
  
On Sunday, August 20, Yonge-Dundas Square will play host to what has become the premier celebration of youth in the City of Toronto. The goal of the fifth annual event known as The Cause is to provide a positive space for youth to come together and have fun, while acknowledging the contributions of their peers and learning about volunteer and employment opportunities.

The Cause is organized by the Toronto Youth Cabinet. It is an event solely by youth, for youth, to recognize their accomplishments and positive energy. Over 2,000 youth participated in last year’s event, which showcased diverse performances by rock, spoken word and multicultural artists.

What: The Cause featuring the Identify ‘n’ Impact Youth Awards Ceremony
Date: Sunday, August 20
Times: noon to 6 p.m. (media reception at 1:30 p.m.; awards ceremony at 2 p.m.)
Location: Yonge-Dundas Square

Members of the Toronto Argonauts Stop the Violence Foundation will join in the celebration, which features, for the first time this year, a demonstration and display of graffiti art by a talented local artist.

“The event is being hosted at the Heart of the City - Yonge-Dundas Square, and is an amazing opportunity to get youth involved, highlight local talent and honour young activists,” said Amarjeet Kaur Chhabra, Director of Special Events for the Toronto Youth Cabinet.

This year, The Cause has an urban theme, with performances by some of Toronto’s hottest talent, including Lady Sweat Nise, Brothers from Different Mothers, and C Spin. The event will also showcase the Identify ‘n’ Impact Youth Awards Ceremony, and the Find Your Cause Expo. Community organizations including No One is Illegal, South Etobicoke Youth Assembly, and SOY will all be in attendance.
