You are invited to The Pathways to Healthy Life Choices (PHLC) project Youth Forum 2016! This year our theme is “Spark an Idea”. It will be at 15 San Romanoway theater on Dec. 8th from 5pm to 7:30pm. Our main speaker is Augustine Obeng.
Augustine Obeng will share his personal experiences as a young black male raised in the Jane-Finch community. He will speak on his book “Changing Lanes” where he summarizes his struggle as they relate to violence, discrimination and the influence of drugs and bureaucracy within the Jane-Finch community. In addition to this, he will speak on his ability to overcome the stereotypes imbedded within the Jane-Finch community as he “changes lanes”.
There will be food, performances and prizes. There will also be two 20mins workshops on how to network and manage mental illness and addiction issues. If you need more details about this event, please contact Akua Yankey at (416) 739-7949 ext. 231.
See you at the forum!
