This year I am honoured to be chosen to be the official YdTO2016  Nurse On Duty  Community health matters and for this reason I am proud to be a part of the Youth day Toronto 2016 team. Let's conquer the war on youth health which includes youth mental wellness through advocacy and knowledge. Special shout out to Youth Day Global Founder Tylaine Duggan for supporting my vision to change the face of knowledge in our community by increasing health and social literacy. Youth day is the perfect day to say that WE CARE.

YD T.O is a FREE annual festival celebrating the positive achievements of young people showcasing their MUSIC, DANCE, ART, PHOTOGRAPHY, FASHION & FILM in front of some 35,000 visitors! Proclaimed an “Event of Municipal Significance” by The City of Toronto, it has also been deemed the ‘largest youth festival of its kind’ by the media. The popularity of the event has grown tremendously due to the support of our dedicated performers and volunteers alike. YD is not just a one-day event but an initiative that is fostered year-round in preparation of our main event. Leading up to our July celebration young artists and performers participate in auditions, press conferences, team meetings, fundraising events, promotional video shoots, media interviews and additional opportunities that allow them to develop their skills, stay active and connected in professional networks of interest to them and aspiring young artists to pursue their passions.

Since 2007 YD (YOUTH DAY) has been celebrating achievements of young people aged 14-29 in the arts, with an annual FREE festival taking place each July at Yonge-Dundas Square. Now in our 10th year we are excited to continue to share our good news story for the City of Toronto’s youth in music, dance, art, photography, fashion and film. Now in its 10th year, YD T.O (YOUTH DAY Toronto) is a FREE family-friendly summer festival, held every July at Yonge-Dundas Square that celebrates young people aged 14-29 in the arts.

With an unprecedented Yonge Street closure that transforms the street into a vibrant market place, the event also includes 12 hours of non-stop music on 2 stages, an art gallery featuring visual art and photography, live art on the square, 2 fashion shows and exciting new activities every year presented by our Corporate Champions. In addition to all of the diverse entertainment and retail opportunities, the event opens with an official Flag Parade and includes a 6 o’ clock Moment of Silence in memory of youth lost to violence.
