For 40 years, Covenant House Toronto has offered services that meet the needs of youth experiencing homelessness and sex trafficking. From our origins as a 30-bed shelter, we have not only expanded our facilities, but our services to ensure young people can ignite their potential. Today we provide a broad range of services from prevention to emergency services to community housing. Our programs are built on best or promising practices and are evaluated on an ongoing basis. We work with community partners and all levels of government to ensure our young people have a voice– but we still have more to do.
That’s why Covenant House Toronto is proud to announce the launch of our new Next Gen Council. This team of dedicated young professionals will be part of our effort to plan for the next generations of volunteers, supporters, advocates, and community leaders of Covenant House Toronto.
Next Gen Council: Your Voice Matters
As society evolves, so do the issues facing young people experiencing homelessness and sex trafficking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen more young people staying with us for longer periods of time. More youth are struggling with finding affordable housing and stable employment, in addition to dealing with their trauma, mental health and addiction challenges.
We’re looking to the next generation of young professionals to provide us with unique perspectives that will assist us with supporting vulnerable youth, as well as fundraising and community development. The Council’s insights will help us ensure we’re providing relevant and meaningful care to young people.
If you are passionate about helping youth chart their paths to independence, this is your chance to be a part of a solution to help end homelessness and sex trafficking one young person at a time.
