In 2003, the CFOFO Executives had a vision for their community, in particular on promoting positive attributes amongst our youth aged 4-25 years. Since the idea revolved around promoting self-confidence and self-esteem in a safe and yet fun-filled environment, the first CFOFO Youth Talent Show was born in 2004. All youths, from all communities with diversified ethnic backgrounds were celebrated for their uniqueness.
In our first year, we had approximately 50 performers showcasing their talents in a hall filled to capacity by audience in attendance. Performances ranged from devotional and popular songs to traditional and contemporary dance pieces. In 2005, CFOFO added in the Youth Newsletter written by a youth for the youths. We also have had over 500 performers take the stage at the Annual Youth Talent Shows over the years. CFOFO has also undertaken to feature youth artists by displaying their artworks ranging from unpolished to polished pieces to showcase and recognize that art exists in a variety of formats.
All of the net proceeds raised get recycled back into the next Youth Talent Show, Scholarship Awards Program, and our Family Fun Day that is solely organized by our youth.
