Imagine spending 12 days on the street. What about 12 weeks? Or even 12 months? A Night in the Life helps build participants understanding of youth homelessness as they immerse themselves in their world for 12 hours.

Homeless youth in Vancouver face a harsh reality. Directions Youth Services is aiming to change that by supporting over 1,000 of Vancouver’s most vulnerable, street-involved youth every year. With a good meal, hot shower, safe place to sleep, and more, Directions is caring for youth when they need it most. We need your help so that we can offer them safe, non-judgemental support to get back on their feet.

Come together to make a measurable difference. Donate now or register today.

At a Night in the Life, participants will:

  • Experience a youth-led Cardboard Van City Homelessness Survival Simulator at Directions Youth Services Centre
  • Receive Naloxone training—a necessity as our city faces the opioid-poisoning crisis
  • Spend the night in your sleeping bag on the street and wake up to a hot breakfast prepared by our Directions staff
