Youth Vision:

AYMC Youth retreats and programming are geared towards students in grade 6-12 , as well as first year College and University students. Once a year we come together as a Diocese for our Annual Diocese of Toronto Youth Retreat.

The Diocese of Toronto Youth Retreat is for youth ages 12-18. Throughout the course of the weekend youth enjoy a variety of contemporary and traditional forms of worship, which allow youth to experience the great diversity of worship that the Anglican Church has to offer!
