Youth VIP Club

See what the hype's about...

Join the band of youth that has taken over Arts Etobicoke!

The Youth VIP Club engages and connects youth between the ages of 10 to 29 in West Toronto with the arts and artists in their own community. Some of the fun and fabulous ways we encourage and support this commitment are through:

Our own youth arts programs:

  • Annual Storefront Gallery exhibitions such as: ‘Creativity Rocks!'
  • Smart Start Student Art Show at Sherway Gardens
  • FREE Saturday Storefront Art Classes such as: ‘African Drumming & Dance'
  • FREE Youth After School Drop-In Art Program, Ages 10-18
  •  Presidents' Legacy Scholarships
  • ‘Get Your 40’ Youth Volunteer Program

Partnering with other cool organizations to present arts and education programs for youth:

  • NEW! Art on the Move (with Luminato & Lakeshore Arts)
  • NEW! Q Map (With LOVE [Leave Out Violence] and Rexdale ProTech Media Centre)
  • NEW! amplify! (with Youth Without Shelter)
  • Art Alley (with Amnesty International)
  • urbanNOISE (with Expect Theatre)
