Sauga youth together with the City of Mississauga, have created National Youth Week - a weeklong youth-led festival of creative expression and community involvement. National Youth Week takes place every year from May 1 to May 7. National Youth Week took control of hosting more than 300 FREE events featuring over 400 artists for over 8000 people across the city each year. National Youth Week is a festival of music, film, the arts, culture, sport and opportunities to make a difference. Our events are a way for us to enlist one another to have an awesome time and show Sauga who we are!
We are passionate. We take a stance. We inspire positive change. We challenge the status quo. We are dynamic. We make things happen.
