My name is Samantha Tewitz and I am this year’s Chair for the 5 Days for the Homeless 2018 campaign. I am in my fourth year here at the University of Alberta majoring in Human Resources within the business faculty.
Why I am doing this:
The Youth Empowerment and Support Services is an incredible resource for youth facing difficult realities within their daily lives. This year’s campaign will be focused on spreading awareness campus-wide about youth homelessness and the support YESS has to offer! I am thrilled to work with this team of seven passionate individuals looking to engage students at the U of A to re-think youth homelessness while supporting YESS.
Look for us in orange in March!
