Steve Gaetz

Making the Shift is a Youth Homelessness Social Innovation Lab with a mandate to contribute to the transformation of how we respond to youth homelessness through research and knowledge mobilization specific to youth homelessness prevention and housing stabilization. Co-led by the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness and A Way Home Canada, and funded by a Tri-Council Networks of Centres of Excellence grant, the goal of Making the Shift is to conduct and mobilize quality research that supports governments, communities, and service providers to make the shift from managing the crisis of youth homelessness to a focus on preventing and enabling sustainable exits from homelessness. In this talk, Gaetz will discuss his work to end youth homelessness and the role of schools in prevention.

Everyone is welcome to attend, and light refreshments will be provided.
