Latin youth to discuss identity in urban village
  
The City of Toronto is proud to support the Hispanic Development Council and the 2nd Annual Latino Youth Summit - Identidad. Lita Gonzalez-Dickey, manager of the Centro Bienvenidos Spanish Resource Centre, will emcee the summit.

Date: Saturday, May 19
Time: Noon (opening remarks)
Location: Council Chamber, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

Identidad will run from noon to 8 p.m. and will focus on the diversity of the Latino youth community in Toronto. The summit will include panel discussions, workshops, a market place and entertainment throughout the day.

Building on the success of last year’s summit - Latino Youth in the Urban Village - hosted by Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation’s Access and Diversity Unit, this year’s summit will move beyond identifying the barriers affecting the Latino youth community and develop a strategy to enhance their social, gender, environmental, educational, entrepreneurial, artistic and cultural integration in the GTA.

Identidad is not exclusive to Latino youth. The organizers encourage the participation of all interested youth, as the summit will integrate youth from different backgrounds into the program.
