AMPLIFY: ‘tuning in’ to the voices of homeless youth through the arts

Ongoing at Youth Without Shelter (YWS) in North Etobicoke since 2011

Youth Without Shelter is Etobicoke's singular emergency residence and referral agency serving homeless youth aged 16-24; they are committed to stepping beyond the basics of food and beds. Arts Etobicoke has partnerened with YWS to facilitate AMPLIFY! since 2011. Each year, we work with YWS to develop a new artistic program and hire a professional artist to teach and facilitate an artistic skill of interest to the youth. The youth have participated in a variety of workshops including jewelry making, songwriting, and mural creation.
