The Sleep Out: Student Edition is an opportunity for young adults to spend time together immersing themselves in some of the problems that homeless teens face every day and to be part of the solution to these problems.
Sleep Out: Student Edition events can be held anywhere in the world. They can be as small as a few kids participating and as large as hundreds coming together. The structure is similar to a dance marathon or team relay program, with fundraising and awareness at the forefront. Students are responsible for planning and customizing their event, which includes fundraising for Covenant House to keep the lights on and the doors open and spending one night sleeping outside in solidarity with the homeless kids they are helping. Our staff is here to help along the way with coaching, technical assistance, and materials.
