2015 Streetlight Gala
On Friday March 27, partners and guests of Streetlight gathered to hear the stories- of young people that the staff and volunteers journey with. Words like family, community, support, love, hope, new direction, lifeline . . . were shared by the youth as they expressed what Streetlight has meant to them on their life journey.
Renee shared about her journey as a teen parent and how Streetlight provided her a community and home supports to be the best mother she could be. “I felt like they were my family and were so supportive of me. Answering questions and encouraging me while I raised my newborn son.”
Jason won the Streetlight volunteer award for his help with the Streetlight mobile youth centre and the E-Recycling program. Jason participates and is an active part of Streetlight to support other youth who need encouragement and a friend to talk to.
We are so thankful to partners who are seeing the needs of youth in our city and are joining with us to provide hope and love to every young person in London!
