Inception VR Inc @ BLack Dog for YESS
Time & Location
About The Event
YESS supports over 700 homeless youth in Edmonton alone. They see approximately 25 in their main center and house many at the shelter. Their mission is to help with their crisis and empower the youth to get out of cycles of poverty and homelessness. Their goal is to get them integrated into society with the skills and resources needed to live a normal life.
YESS spends over $6000 per youth each year and relies on fundraisers for the bulk of their funding. I did a tour of their main center and it's in need of resources desperately which is the reason we are putting on this Flash Fundraiser to get funds and resources to support these youth on their journey.
Through community we can build a better society and the aim of the organization is to be more proactive to crisis than reactive and help each of these kids through their traumas. 100% of the youth that use the facilities have experienced trauma. Many were foster kids who aged out of the system. They need the support and the chance to make a better life for themselves and through direct action we are going to make it easier for YESS to support our Edmonton youth.
