Join us for an exciting community event in support of youth mental health, featuring some of your favourite Canadian artists!
After a long few years of isolation, it’s time to get the community back together and show our support for youth mental health initiatives. Hosting this event is The Grove Youth Wellness Hubs, a collaborative project, with the aim of providing youth ages 12-26 with the support they need to build positive, bright futures, and presented by Skyline Group of Companies.
General Admission of this event will be outside right on the in-field of the Grand River Racetrack in Elora!
Enjoy a VIP experience with a private patio BBQ along with Raceway infield access directly from The GrandWay Events Centre.
This family-friendly event will host live performances from Dear Rouge, Danny Michel, presented by Hillside Festival, JESSIA, presented by Riverfest Elora, and local acts The New People, SHEBAD, and Chelsie Popp as well as presentations from The Grove Youth Wellness Hubs, a video presentation from Alan Doyle, lead singer from Canadian folk band Great Big Sea, and more! If that isn’t exciting enough, there will also be food trucks, information booths, lounge areas, beer tents, and more throughout the event!
The goal of The Grove Hubs is to build a more effective health and social service system, through integration and collaboration, to better meet the needs of youth in Wellington County & Guelph. Hubs include 7 locations and feature the benefit of “one door,” with sites networked together. At each site, youth will be given access to programs and services that provide guidance and support for the future. From education and career support to counselling and peer-to-peer programs, The Grove facilities will provide help and encouragement to every youth in the community.
As the presenting sponsor of Ignite, Skyline continues to show its support of The Grove, previously demonstrated in the opening of Skyline Community Hub, the first shared community workspace in Fergus, Ontario.
Let’s ignite support for youth mental health and have fun doing it!
