Y2Y Network is building a movement of student-led shelters to interrupt cycles of homelessness for young adults, while leveraging university resources to address the reasons why they become homeless. At Y2Y Harvard Square, our pilot site, we employ a youth-to-youth model to provide a safe and affirming environment for young adults ages 18 to 24 experiencing homelessness. Y2Y guests work with service providers, other youth experiencing homelessness, and student volunteers to create sustainable pathways out of homelessness and develop skills for long-term success. Y2Y provides opportunities for both guests and volunteers to become the next generation’s leading advocates for youth-driven solutions to homelessness.
