Facility Forum - Winter 2017 - 13

There were two dynamic keynote
speakers, including Michael Prosserman,
speaking on "Standing Mental Health on
Its Head - Mental Health Awareness and
Stigma Reduction," and a Teen Art Show,
which included "I am Ontario, Youth
Arts Showcase," a fashion show hosted
by Pickering Museum Village (Fashion
through the Ages), Hip Hop in the Park,
with guest judges, DJ and MC, were all
part of our event. Our many sponsors
and partners provided prizes and incentives for participation, including RBC who
provided three $150 grants for pre-forum
participants to use the funds to give back
to the community. During the Pre-Forum
they made a video to show how each student used the funds to pay it forward and
showcased this at the Youth Forum on
May 4, 2017. This footage was added to
the day of the Forum event via a "speaker's corner," along with details about how
the youth who participated see Canada
and Pickering changing over the next
50 years. In addition, RBC agreed to give
out additional $150 grants the day of the
event, and will continue with adding to
the video content, so that we can include
this in our post-forum showcase event.
