Welcome to the University of Alberta’s 5 Days For the Homeless campaign page! 


We are thrilled to introduce the organization that we’re supporting this year: Youth Empowerment and Support Services

YESS is a relentlessly dedicated not-for-profit organization that shapes the future of Edmonton by supporting youth facing difficult realities.  Last year, YESS directly served over 600 youth! We’re proud to partner with them to ensure that they can continue to support the work that they do everyday with at-risk and homeless youth. 

Our goal for this year’s campaign is to raise $25,000 in support of Youth Empowerment and Support Services

This year’s campaign will begin on March 13th and run through until the 17th.
