Local youth are raising awareness and funds for homelessness in our city. And they’re doing more than just talking about the issue.
Sleep Out 120 is a five-day, 120-hour-long campaign, running from April 25-30, 2011, during which participants commit to living “homeless” on the streets of St. John’s to raise awareness on the issue of youth homelessness in Newfoundland and Labrador. The campaign also aims to raise monetary funds for its recipient charity, Choices for Youth, a non-profit, community-based agency that provides housing and lifestyle development supports to youth in the St. John’s metro area. By encouraging our city’s young people to sacrifice their comforts and stand up for those less fortunate than themselves, this campaign supports a vision of social responsibility through youth supporting youth.
