We Can Protect Homeless Youth and At-Risk Youth

Today’s guest post comes to us from Alliance policy and program analyst André Wade.

Between October 3 and October 7, Senator Patrick Leahy (VT-D) hosted an exhibit of the HighLow Project in Washington, D.C. to raise awareness of homeless and at-risk youth.

Senator Leahy is responsible for the reauthorization of the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act in 2008, a federal program that serves homeless young people.

The HighLow Project is a collaboration between photographer Ned Castle and the Vermont Coalition of Runaway and Homeless Youth Programs. The collection of photographs tells the compelling stories of youth in Vermont based on real “high” and “low” points in the lives of these youths. The photographs are a sobering reminder of the realities that many vulnerable youth experience.
