“A presentation at Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto on Saturday, May 15, 2010 at 4:00 pm.

The purpose of this show is to launch a youth-centred curriculum that was created in collaboration with Me to We, the social enterprise that supports Free the Children. The purpose of the curriculum is to help young people realize their greater potential and to inspire them to contribute to society in their own unique ways.

There are seven themes in the curriculum:

1. Dealing with failure and disappointments
2. Understanding one’s self-identity
3. Developing hope and courage
4. Relationships
5. Community building
6. Learning the art of dialogue
7. The value of having dreams and goals.

These themes will be depicted in the show through the story of a day in the life of a young person, expressed through music and dance.

More than 800 SGI Canada youth and children from across the country and representatives from Me to We will be participating in the show. Marc Kielburger, co-founder of Free the Children, the world’s largest organization of children helping children through education, will be the guest speaker at the event.”

SGI members represent the full spectrum of society, with members of all ages, ethnic and social backgrounds.  www.sgicanada.org/
