Education is a youth's passport to the future. Youth Without Shelter's 20 bed Stay in School Program supports homeless youth in striving for their educational goals. Transit becomes a barrier to reaching those goals. $117 provides one month of transit fare for a youth in the YWS Stay in School Program to accomplish their educational goals. When no one is expecting them home we are.
“I’ve experienced eviction, living without hydro, going to bed many nights hungry. My social worker referred me to YWS’s Stay in School Program. At Youth Without Shelter I was able to graduate high school with honors.” (Past YWS resident)
