While sitting in a classroom, doing homework and listening to a teacher lecture are things most students find hemselves doing on a Friday morning,
on September 20, thousands of youth were spending their time differently—at Free the Children’s annual We Day in Toronto.

The Air Canada Centre was packed with 20, 000 students and educators from over 950 schools in the area. Joining them was a star-studded lineup of performers and guest speakers including the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Austin Mahone and Imagine Dragons. Glee star Darren Criss took over the stage as a co-host along with Canadian TV personalities Aliya-Jasmine Sovani and Scott Willats.
