6th Annual W.A.V.E. Empowering Youth Day

Singer Kwinter was proud to once again sponsor the 6th Annual W.A.V.E. Empowering Youth Day on Tuesday, May 6th, 2014.  Championed by Louise Russo, W.A.V.E. (Working Against Violence Everyday), “The charity continues to encourage young people to change their mindset towards bullying, self-image and disrespect and to make a difference in their own lives…honouring youth who have enhanced the safety of their school or community by organizing activities and programs that focus on the 3R’s: Respect, Responsibility and the Role of leadership.”

Along with returning emcee Rick Campanelli, co-host of Global’s ET Canada, special guests included:

  • Vita Chambers, Juno Nominated Recording Artist
  • Corey Dixon & Shane Kipps from Degrassi, a conversation on the effects of bullying
  • Ian Tyson, standup comic & co-founder of Youth Leadership Camps Canada
  • Erin Hodgson, a young person who shared her personal journey in an effort to open up the conversation about mental health
  • Alex Escobar, whose resilient nature made him an empowering leader in his community
  • With The Lights Off, a talented group of young musicians turning heads in the Toronto music scene with their catchy dance/pop sound
