Toronto Youth Cabinet celebrates youth at Yonge Dundas Square|
| || ||
On Sunday, July 17, Dundas Square will play host to what has become the premier
celebration of youth in the city of Toronto. The goal of the fourth annual
event known as The Cause is to provide a positive space for youth to come
together, acknowledge the contributions of their peers, learn about volunteer
and employment opportunities, and most importantly, to have a good time.
What: The Cause featuring the Identify ‘n’ Impact Youth Awards Ceremony
Date: Sunday, July 17
Times: 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Media reception: 3 p.m.
Awards ceremony: 4 p.m.
Where: Yonge Dundas Square
The Cause is organized by the Toronto Youth Cabinet and was created as an event
solely by youth, for youth so that their accomplishments and positive energy
could be recognized. Over 2,500 youth participated at last year's event at
Nathan Phillips Square, which featured live graffiti art, bike stunts, and
performances by a step dance troupe and a break dance crew.
"The Cause is an opportunity for young people to find out what they are
passionate about through the Find-Your-Cause Expo, an outlet for our peers to
showcase their artistic talents throughout the day, and a perfect environment
to present the Identify 'n' Impact Youth Awards that recognize outstanding
youth volunteerism and advocacy in Toronto," said William Li, Director of
Special Events for the Toronto Youth Cabinet.
Features of this year's event include the Find Your Cause Expo, the Identify
‘n’ Impact Award Ceremony and live entertainment by some of Toronto's hottest
young talent, such as Daniel Lewis and LAL.
