BOX CITY

Each fall Loveworks challenges students to become overnight advocates in action through Box City. Students sleep in a cardboard box overnight and passionately raise awareness for homelessness. You can be an advocate too! Volunteer opportunities include: event planning team, set-up/tear-down crew, and zombie crew (overnight!).

"You have the power to use your unique skills, knowledge, and experiences to positively influence the leaders of tomorrow. You have the power to help students understand that they are smart, strong, and worthy. You can help students live into their dreams and discover their potential. And, you might even discover your own worth, value, and importance and have to courage to revisit a dream you once had."
