CANCELLED: The 5th Forum de la francophonie torontoise gives place to youth at Glendon!
Students in Grades 10 to 12s from French-language schools and Immersion programs will gather at York University’s Glendon Campus on Tuesday, March 27, to showcase their talents in different forms, all in French!
Today’s youth have a say and actions drive them. Forum Jeunesse will therefore provide secondary school students with a platform to put their talents to use and enrich their knowledge through a series of interactive workshops that reflect today’s reality; whether it is community health, improving public knowledge, oral expression or social integration.
With the help of Glendon students and expert professors in their fields, these lucky students will learn how to write and improve French-language articles on Wikipedia, discover the role they can play regarding their own health using technologies, explore theatrical improvisation or design an application or a video game to support social integration.
In fact, 25 youth will have the opportunity to participate in MAJ – Marathon des Applications mobiles et Jeux vidéo, where teams will each design a mobile application or a video game that can help young Francophone immigrants integrate more successfully in Toronto. The winning team will receive a prize and their product will be presented to the City of Toronto. This friendly competition will foster creativity, problem-solving and civic engagement!

Forum Jeunesse is part of a series of activities that will be held at the Glendon Campus to celebrate the Semaine de la francophonie, from March 20 to 27, 2018.
