Founded in 2005, University of Alberta School of Business students identified homelessness as a growing issue, and desired to create a campaign that could raise both money and awareness for homeless and at-­risk youth in Edmonton. The 5 Days campaign supports Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS), through a group of students living “homeless” on campus for five days in March.

The campaign this year takes place from March 13-18 at the Alberta School of Business.
