Tokens4Change helps homeless youth overcome the diverse range of obstacles they face and break out of the cycle of homelessness. Created seven years ago by a group of young Toronto volunteers, Tokens4Change is a 12 hour event that aims to raise awareness of youth homelessness in Toronto.
On Friday, February 2, between 7:00am and 7:00pm, more than 400 student volunteers from over 17 schools across the city and 100+ adult volunteers will inspire commuters in 24+ TTC, PATH and office locations with performances of spoken word poetry, theatre, dance, visual art, and music. Volunteers will be collecting donations with all proceeds going to support transportations costs and essential empowering programs at Youth Without Shelter. Stop by the Concourse Level from 7:30am to 5:30pm to show your support. Check out the event schedule at tokens4change.com for details on where to find live performances and volunteers.
