12th annual Breakfast for YOU

Date: February 8, 2018

GLEED proudly presents the 12th Annual Breakfast for YOU!

Since 1982, Youth Opportunities Unlimited has helped lead youth 15-29 in London and Middlesex County toward success. We believe that investing in youth results in stronger communities, and know that many youth need guidance and support to reach their true potential. Whether in need of a hot meal, affordable housing, employment or skills training at one of our social enterprises, we focus on the individual needs of each youth, and support them in making positive life decisions.

This year we welcome Madi Parks as our youth speaker. Madi will touch on the challenges she has faced in London such as homelessness, vulnerability, and the impact of trauma. Her story will engage, educate, and empower you to make a difference within the community.

Gift boxes will be sold throughout the Breakfast for $20 with the chance to win jewelry, overnight stays, downtown dollars, event tickets, a golf package and much, much more!
