Role: Creator and project manager
Presence for the People is an initiative generously funded by TakingITGlobal, one of the world's leading networks of young people learning about, engaging with, and working towards tackling global challenges.
As part of a youth service initiative, Presence for the People is a reoccurring event in which young people come together to spend time with people living on the streets of Montreal. The idea is to be present with those who often get ignored hundreds of times a day, connecting with those who make up an important part of our community.
In addition to friendly conversations, participants are also offered care packages that include water, warm socks and gloves, hygiene products, and a hot meal of their choice.
