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
area.

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

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.
