BRAMPTON - The second annual Youth Making a Difference Workshop, hosted by the local youth-run non-profit ACCESS Charity, is being held on March 24, 2010 in Brampton, Ontario. Registration is due March 5.
The purpose of the event is to educate, empower, raise awareness and work in solidarity for change with the youth in Peel Region and beyond. Inspiring guest speakers, community service opportunities, engaging activities and exciting performances await local high school students.
This year's workshop theme is Passion to Action, based on youth putting their passions into action; becoming active and involved in issues that are important to them.
