Official opening of youth centre in Toronto's Malvern community
  
Staff and local youth leaders will join Councillor Raymond Cho (Ward 42 Scarborough-Rouge River) and members of the community on Wednesday to officially open the Art and Technology Centre, known as the SPOT (Success, Power, Opportunity, Teamwork), with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Date: Wednesday, June 5
Time: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Remarks: 11 a.m.
Location: The SPOT, Malvern Public Library, 30 Sewells Rd.

The 350-square-metre (3,770-square-foot) SPOT centre is a Youth Challenge Fund legacy initiative created in partnership with the City of Toronto, the Toronto Public Library, East Metro Youth Services (as operator of the ProTech Media Centre - funded by Microsoft and Renewed Computer Technology) and United Way Toronto.

The SPOT, a youth-led initiative, serves as a safe place where young people between the ages of 14 to 25 can develop their creative voice while acquiring skills for long-term individual and community success.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city.
