“YouthConnect 2011” is an exciting opportunity for youth to play, create, compose and engage at a pre-event before the My Mississauga Youth concert program on the same date.

Displays and booths will highlight the youth agencies and programs that provide information and support to young adults, and connect them to ways they can become involved in the community. The event will also feature local youth volunteer artists, musicians and skateboarders who will “show their stuff.”
