Imagine spending 12 days on the street. What about 12 weeks? Or even 12 months?

Your 12-hour immersion into the lives of homeless youth will challenge you. It will be eye-opening and humbling.

Homeless youth in Vancouver face a harsh reality. Here’s your chance to change that.

Directions Youth Services needs your help to support over 1,000 of Vancouver’s most vulnerable, street-involved youth every year. As our clients face the crises of their lives, our programs are part of the solution—we offer safe, non-judgmental support that helps youth get back on their feet.

You can help—but you don’t have to do it alone

We need corporate and community leaders to step up and support Vancouver`s homeless youth.
