U for Change is a dynamic organization transforming young lives in Toronto’s St. James Town, considered one of Canada’s most ethnically-diverse yet poorest neighbourhoods. Through a unique, eight-month program of mentorship, leadership development and skills training in the arts (e.g. music, fashion design, photography), U for Change is helping to restore confidence and hope in teens and young adults who have faced difficult, often unimaginable challenges.
The second set of participants of the U for Change program will soon be graduating. To celebrate, these youth will be showcasing their creative talents in a festival of arts and culture called Vivacity.
The first event is the Multimedia Gallery Event December 13, other events listed separately (Dec 16, 17, 18) involve theatre, fashion, music and dance. Admission is free.
