We are excited to share an engaging new initiative with you that will offer high school students a glimpse of what their life would be like if they were homeless. The initiative is Sleep Out Student Edition, and it will change the way students view homelessness forever.
In October, senior students will sleep out overnight on school property - without the comforts and conveniences of their homes or families. They will participate in discussion groups about homelessness and debrief their experience in the morning - before going to class. They will develop a deep understanding of the social issues their homeless peers are facing and get a sense of what these disadvantaged youth living on the streets face on a daily basis.
