As New Members of the St. James Town Youth Council what better way to orient ourselves in the council than to give a tour of our community. This being one of the two major events the New Members Committee will be working on this year. The other being a Banquet we will organize for all Council Members and their friends and family during the Summer.
The tour taking place in March will be organized for the students from the teacher college at the University of Toronto Ontario Institute for Studies in Education(OISE). The goal will be to acquaint the student teachers with our neighborhood and show them what it is like to live in our inner city neighborhood. As of now we are in the planning stages deciding what exactly we will show them and the route we plan to take around the community.
The Banquet is tentatively set for the last week of August. It will be a celebration of all the accomplishments made during the year and a chance for council members to unwind before returning to school in September.
