Will You Take Part in the Youth Backyard Winter Sleepout?

Canice's Kitchen Backyard Winter Sleepout

Canice’s Kitchen in Elizabeth Bay warmly welcomes Waverley Senior School students aged 14-18, to be part of the Backyard Winter Sleepout.

If you’re passionate about, interested in, or even curious about social justice, this could be an experience for you.

What another senior student said about the 2021 Backyard Winter Sleepout:

“I would 100% recommend this service to others, the entire experience was outside my comfort zone and something I learnt a lot from. It made me more grateful for what I have and helped me truly realise what homeless people feel.” Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview Year 10 student, 2021 event

The Sleepout might also develop your understanding of the huge impact that homelessness can have on the life of another young person. This may also deepen your empathy.

Interested? Grab a tent, swag or a sleeping bag and sleep rough for homelessness.

When: Saturday, 20 August 2022

Where: In your own home! This is a unique virtual event, so you can do it in a safe sleep space in your backyard, car or balcony

Duration: 6pm-6am (12 hours)
