About the symposium:

Youth4Music is a network of youth who are passionate about music in their lives – learning, appreciating, creating and making music. Youth4Music provides a platform for youth voices, and leadership opportunities for youth to make a difference for music in their schools and communities. The program is “for youth – by youth – through music.”

Our objective with this second Youth4Music Toronto Leadership Symposium is to keep working with Toronto youth on the Youth4Music manifesto. Our goals are:

  • to develop a community of young Toronto thought-leaders and change-makers who will actively engage in strategies for each of the 4 components of the Youth4Music Manifesto so that the Manifesto lives meaningfully in Toronto
  • to develop and support a Toronto’s Youth4Music action plan
  • to develop a Youth4Music Toronto hub
  • to discover Toronro leader(s) to join a National Youth4Music Advisory Council

Participants (youth 30 and under):

  • students (middle school, high school, college, university)
  • student music teachers and music teachers just starting out
  • professional and amateur musicians

To register:

This symposium is FREE (participants must be 30 and under).
