Youth to "Pump Up the Volume" at Ryerson Saturday

October 20, 2006

A conference by, for, and about young people will take place tomorrow at Ryerson University, sponsored by the Office of Child and Family Service Advocacy of Ontario and the School of Child and Youth Care at Ryerson. Adults will have the opportunity to listen while youth talk about how they have had a voice and influenced change in the institutions that have a daily impact on their lives. A series of interactive sessions have been put together by youth across Canada, from Cape Breton to Vancouver. Topics include pharmaceutical management strategies in institutions, and how youth use culture and identity as a means of survival. CNW media release
