Tokens 4 Change raises funds for Youth Without Shelter, a shelter in Etobicoke that gives a home to 1,000 homeless youth a year.
Tokens 4 Change is focused on youth acting for youth. Throughout the year, we run workshops in high schools based on the themes of homelessness. We bring in professional artists and encourage the students to build art in various forms that they then present to the public…art installations, street art, music, choreography, performance art and much more.
Then on one day in February, all the schools take to the streets! They can be found at TTC stations all across the city where they collect donations (either tokens or cash) from commuters. At some of the stations the students perform live.
The fifth Tokens4Change set a new record! On Friday February 6, 2015 over 450 volunteers came together and raised $93,474.59 for Youth Without Shelter! Check out photos from T4C2015.
