Spectrum’s Student Sleep Out

March 28–30, 2019, or on a date that works for you

Thank you to all participating 2018 Student Sleep Out teams!


Between March 31 and April 14, 2018, over 300 students and 20 teams from across Chittenden County slept outside overnight to show their support for homeless youth as part of Spectrum’s Student Sleep Out.

Thanks to Sleep Out participants and generous donors, we raised $315,000! This money goes a long way towards keeping our doors open for youth looking for help. The money you raised will help provide youth with 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.

Homelessness is a serious issue in our society. As a teacher, I have had many students in my class experience homelessness. I felt that it was important for me to participate and learn more so that I can be more knowledgeable and better equipped.
