The Toronto Vegetarian Association (www.veg.ca) has a new youth group!



There are two aspects to the youth group:



1. We hold networking/info sharing sessions to give people in high school and university a chance to offer support and share ideas about running a vegetarian/animal rights group at one's school.



2. We have monthly educational and social events for vegetarians and those interested in vegetarianism. These events are held in the GTA, and are designed for people aged 16-20. Examples of events include cooking classes, discussion panels, speakers, and poetry workshops. We've dubbed these events "V-Dot, Toronto's Vegetarian Youth"



We'd love to hear feedback about the group and are very open to suggestions. We're here for you, so use us!



Our first V-Dot event:

WHEN: Wednesday, October 18th, 6:30-9:30pm

WHAT: This theme of this one is Vegetarian Self-Defence. It will be a discussion about answering stupid questions regarding vegetarianism followed by a fun movie. Free vegan snacks will be provided!

RSVP: or get more info (such as location) by emailing youth@veg.ca or calling (416) 544 - 9800
