Youth4Music is a network of youth who are passionate about music in their lives – learning, appreciating, creating and making music.

The program is “for youth – by youth – through music.”

– To develop a community of young Toronto thought-leaders and change-makers who will actively engage in strategies for each of the 4 components of the Youth4Music Manifesto so that the Manifesto lives meaningfully in Toronto

– To develop and support a Toronto’s Youth4Music action plan

– To develop a Youth4Music Toronto hub

– To discover Toronro leader(s) to join a National Youth4Music Advisory Council

Participants (youth 30 and under):
