ABOUT YOUTH DAY:
YOUTH DAY was created by Canadian Founder and Executive Producer Tylaine Duggan in 2006 to engage young people, and encourage them to find a passion in MUSIC, DANCE, ART, PHOTOGRAPHY, FASHION and FILM. The initiative focuses them during the year towards a goal, and at the festival allows them to showcase their positive achievements across 3 outdoor stages in downtown Toronto, which also features a Youth Gallery for more than 40,000 visitors – applauding their efforts and helping build self-esteem for our next generation of young people.
YOUTH DAY is a non-profit entity operated solely by dedicated Volunteers and caring Partner Organizations, enabled by Corporate brands sponsoring the operational costs of the festival’s production in a commendable gesture of giving back to their customers, and showing their valued participation in the Community. No Artists or Volunteers receive remuneration.
