Media Advisory: Advocate's Award to be presented to innovative youth programs
Councillor Olivia Chow, City of Toronto Youth Advocate will present the Youth
Advocate Award for Innovation at a news conference Thursday, April 3 at 11 a.m.
in the Member's Lounge at Toronto City Hall.

Two programs will share the $5,000 cash award:
· The Teen Violence Prevention Project at Black Creek Community Health Centre
that trains at-risk youth to develop and deliver creative presentations on
safety and violence issues to younger students in schools in the Jane-Finch

· Supporting Our Youth (SOY) at Central Toronto Youth Services a community
development project serving lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and transgender

Youth from both projects will participate in the news conference and members of
the Teen Violence Prevention Project will perform a short skit on positive and
negative youth attitudes.

The Youth Advocate Award for Innovation was established to honour youth
programs that have shown innovation in:
· delivering existing services in a new and more effective manner or developing
new forms of service to meet community need; and
· engaging youth in the planning and delivery of service.
