Horizons for Youth- U of T chapter (UofT-HY)

The goal of the organization is to assist and bring awareness to homelessness and at-risk youth, aged 16-24, within our city in conjunction with our parent organization, Horizons for Youth. In addition, through our activities, we want to remove the stigma of homelessness.
Our goal will be achieved through a series of events that will be held throughout the year aiming to raise funds and awareness of homelessness, as well as mobilize necessary resources, in particular, the resources provided by Horizons for Youth for at-risk youths. These resources include, but are not limited to shelter, food, day programs, mental health and addiction support, case management (education, finance, legal issues, personal identification, housing etc.), as well as community support and aftercare.
Events may include, but not limited to: fundraising events (the funds will be given to Horizons for Youth so they can provide more assistance to the youth at their shelter as they see fit), and information sessions and workshops consisting of guest speakers from the organization to raise awareness of resources available for at-risk youth, and promote community involvement.
Furthermore, all general members will have the opportunity to play an active role within the club. More specifically, general members may choose to participate in the organization’s event committee. There, the members will have the opportunity to cooperate with the Fundraising Coordinator and other executive members and contribute to the planning and conduction of events for the organization. Additionally, members may also wish to be a part of the organization’s Volunteer committee, which will consist of regular visits to the shelter to provide assistance with the shelter’s needs (e.g. activities, organization, etc.).
In order to raise awareness, the organization will host seminars and/or workshops. These events will include guest speakers, who will provide an insight on homelessness and poverty.
