Hey! My name is Emily and I am one of two VP Corporate Relations for the 5 Days for the Homeless campaign of 2018. I'm now working on completing an after-degree in Strategic Management and Organization at the University of Alberta.
Why I am doing this:
The main reason I wanted to get involved in this campaign was to spread awareness about youth homelessness. The young people who we are helping by partnering with the Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS) are the future of our communities and this campaign allows us the opportunity to help them in a worthwhile manner. I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to volunteer with an inspirational team to help fundraise on behalf of YESS and I look forward to reaching out to businesses around Edmonton to gather support for this cause.
