Passages Youth Engagement Hub

WA Teachers, do you want a free guest speaker and raise money for youth homelessness?

Homelessness Week 2022 is fast approaching! Traditionally held in the first week of August, this week is dedicated to raising awareness about homelessness.

As a lived experience educator that discusses homelessness, August is usually very busy. However, this year I want to use some of my bookings during this month specifically for high school students.

For these special bookings, I’ll be donating my time to help educate students about homelessness. There will be no fee for these sessions. What I ask in return is to use the session to help me fundraise for a cause that’s very close to my heart.

I was homeless and sleeping rough during the ages 16-17. The picture in this post is one of the areas where I used to sleep. This period of my life has had long lasting impacts physically and mentally. I was isolated and alone for much of this time.

This is why I’ve decided to donate all the money we raise to Passages Youth Engagement Hub.

“Passages is very often the first step off the street for young people with complex needs. The people we help are often excluded from other support services and would otherwise have nowhere else to turn. Passages works to build relationships with young people by offering practical assistance and support, while identifying longer term needs and issues.”

If you’d like to participate in this or want to find out more about these sessions please feel free to contact us below
