Call for Volunteers for YSB’s Sleepout for Youth 2019!
This year in Ottawa, more than 1000 young people will spend the coldest, darkest, and harshest months of the year with no place to call home. Sadly, the winter months are not the only battle for homeless youth in Ottawa. Many are suffering from trauma, mental health issues, poverty, addiction, and other challenges that contribute to homelessness.
Each year, community members and leaders sleep out to raise critical funds to support homeless youth in our community.
We invite you to join us this year and help make a difference in the life of a youth. We are looking for volunteers:
When: November 28th, 2019 evening
November 29th, 2019 morning
Where: TD Place Field-Lansdowne
Volunteers are needed for the following roles:
Event Set Up
Tent Sent Up
Morning Helpers/Tear Down/Breakfast
Note that this event occurs outside and therefore volunteers are encouraged to dress accordingly for the weather.
