COST: FREE!
LOCATION: Loblaws, 5970 Mclaughlin Road Mississauga

Guest Speakers:

1) Aiden Lee
"My name is Aiden Lee, I am 14 years old. I have the triple A’s - Autism, ADHD, Anxiety. Oh there is one more A I would like to talk about - ART.
I am currently working on a project called ‘Art from the heart’. It’s about awareness for all ABILITIES, another A. You see, art is communication with colour, shape and design. It needs no voice for speech. There is no room for discrimination or prejudice. There is no barriers to cross when you are painting, just soothing colours, designs and pictures. So far I have taught over 630 kids and young adults to date in public, separate and private schools in Oakville, Mississauga, Burlington and Hamilton. This is only the beginning".

2) Constable Rob Rezek, Youth Education Bureau, Peel Regional Police 
Const. Rob will be speaking to us about the Vulnerable Registry.  The Vulnerable Person Registry (VPR) is a service in Mississauga and Brampton that allows caregivers of vulnerable persons to submit vital information to a database that will be used by police and other emergency services during a crisis situation.

Guest speakers, light refreshments as well as door prizes, we hope to see you all there!
