YD T.O is a celebration of our youth; their positive achievements in the arts; and their aspirations for a bright future.
However tragically, we loose some of our youth to violence every year. At 6 o’clock we remember those we’ve lost; those that were part of our families; those who went to school with members of the audience.
YD T.O works with organizations such as Crime Stoppers, Toronto Police Service, Toronto Fire Services, the RCMP and other community organizations recognizes the victims of crime and suggests reflection of these senseless acts.
All our youth are precious; special and have a full life ahead. Our message; PLEASE, pick up a guitar or a paintbrush – just don’t pick up a gun…”
