General FAQ

Who can participate in Sleep Out: Champions Edition?

Become a champion and join a group of dynamic professionals and community members helping young people experiencing homelessness. We encourage individuals and teams of people who are comfortable reaching out to their networks and advocating for youth in need.

What is expected of participants?

Participants are challenged to each raise $2,000 in critical funds and increase awareness for Covenant House Vancouver and our Programs.

All participants are required to fundraise. Fundraising is made easy with your own personal fundraising page and fundraising tools to reach out to your networks. Check out our Participant Toolkit and Fundraising FAQ for details.

What will the Sleep Out look like?

Each participant will give up the comforts of their bed for one night to provide many nights of safety at Covenant House Vancouver. Participants will Sleep Out with nothing more than a piece of cardboard and a sleeping bag.

The safety of our participants, youth, staff, and volunteers is our first and foremost concern during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently reviewing best practice for hosting this event safely, while also providing the best Sleep Out experience possible. Further details will be announced in the coming weeks.
