Spectrum’s Student Sleep Out

April 5-8, 2018, or on a date that works for you

Join the Student Sleep Out this April!

  • Date: April 5-8th, 2018 (or on a date that works for you)
  • Location: You choose a location that works for you.
  • Fundraising minimum: None, but every dollar you raise helps young adults in need!


During the Student Sleep Out, about 450 students unroll their sleeping bags at locations across Chittenden County to show their support for homeless youth as part of Spectrum’s Student Sleep Out.

With your help, we will reach our goal of raising $350,000 to ensure our doors stay open for youth looking for help. The money you raise gives our youth a roof over their heads, warm meals, and so much more.

For more information on how to hold your own Sleep Out, download our toolkit here.

The Student Sleep Out was inspired by Celia Andrews, who was nine at the time. Read more about her story here.

It’s cool to hear younger kids talk about homelessness and see them realize that people their own age that go to their schools are homeless…and to also see them sympathizing and wanting to help.
