The Element High School Sleeps Out for Homeless Youth!
The Youth Services Bureau’s SleepOUT for Youth is a unique fundraising event in support of programs to reduce youth homelessness in Ottawa. Since 2012, youth and their families and friends, along with community and business leaders, have spent one night outside – without many of the comforts of home. The experience calls attention to the realities faced by well over 1,000 young people who find themselves homeless in Ottawa each year.
The Element High School SleepOUT team has done an incredible job at fundraising for this event. Students led various initiatives including a cake auction, a bake sale at our Halloween Party, a Jack-o’-Lantern sale, a Photography Exhibit at Mantovani 1946, as well as door-to-door fundraising. We raised over $5,000 to meet our ambitious fundraising goal!
