You’re not in this alone.

While the thought of giving up the comforts of home to spend a night “on the street” may intimidate you, the Sleep Out staff team is here to help you at every step of the way. The resources below will help you make the most of your Sleep Out experience, and help is just a phone call or email message away.

Download and complete this editable Sleep Out planning timeline to help you get organized. Then, register your Sleep Out team and recruit members to join (each participant should register and create their own page).

Plan Your Sleep Out Program

A Student Sleep Out is a special experience that will make everyone who participates more aware of the stuff that homeless kids deal with every day. But apart from the "Sleeping Out", what do you do? Find activity ideas here that you can use in advance or during your Sleep Out.


We do so much online and with our phones, but sometimes having information on paper is helpful. Find printable resources here that will help you plan your Sleep Out.

Adults & Advisors

Thank you for choosing to work with a group of students to make an impact on your community. This program was designed specifically for young adults and there is no aspect of the program that cannot be prepared or managed by students, but we have found that some supervision makes the planning process easier and safer.
