On Saturday, October 15th at the Immigrant Resource Centre, CICS Youth Council members hosted their very first “World of Talent” - a youth talent show funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) with sponsorship from the CICS Foundation and Royal Bank of Canada.
With the objective of celebrating the diversity and multiculturalism that make Toronto unique, youth from various schools showcased their different cultures through stage performances including singing, dancing, instrument playing and much more. With the help of our Creative Lab youth volunteers and the IRC Youth Worker team, this Youth Council event was a resounding success! The high quality and creative performances impressed the audience and everyone had a wonderful time.
Riding on the positive outcomes of this first experience, our volunteers are looking forward to bringing more programs like this to celebrate the creativity of our youth in the future.
