The Breakfast for YOU is the signature fundraising event of Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU). With 1,200 community leaders in attendance, the Breakfast is a much-anticipated opportunity to connect, network, be inspired, and to help ensure that the youth of London Middlesex have the services and supports that they need to thrive!
Our 2024 keynote speakers are two captivating young people who have participated in programming at YOU; Vincent Bresette, Youth Advocate and Peer Mentor, and Amanda Tretter, Video Producer with Blue Scarf Productions. We commend Amanda and Vincent, who will be sharing their stories of overcoming obstacles and building for their futures.
Each year 3,600 youth between the ages of 16 and 30 access the system of supports available at YOU. Funds raised from the Breakfast for YOU will go to the highest priority needs of the organization, enabling services such as education, employment and skills training programs, as well as the provision of shelter, housing and basic needs supports.
We hope you will purchase your tickets, tables and donated seats for youth, and join us Friday, February 9th at RBC Place London for an inspirational morning. You will want to purchase gift boxes at the event. Each one contains a gift, but 10 contain extra special gifts of locally donated packages valued at up to $5,000!
