AN UNFORGETTABLE EVENT – For the first time in Montreal
The event aimed to make the corporate community aware of the issue of youth homelessness in our city. On October 5th, 2017, over 50 executive participants (CEOs, directors, etc.) from major companies, start-up leaders, and young professionals took on the challenge of sleeping one night on the street to raise awareness around the reality of life on the street. During the night, the participants were invited to follow the journey of a youth who has been helped by Dans la rue.
Understanding the reality of life on the street
“Participating in this event is a unique opportunity to learn more about the reality faced by the youth who come to Dans la rue and to concretely support this organization, which helps young people in need every single day. When we know that the majority of them do not have a high school diploma and that many have grown up in Youth Protection Services, we understand that we must act for the good of our community,” explained Robert Dumas, President of Sun Life Financial, Quebec, Presenting Sponsor of Une nuit dans la rue.
