Shine a light this november
November is National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM), a public awareness campaign designed to “shine a light” on the experiences of runaway and homeless youth that too often remain invisible. It is also an opportunity to spotlight the resources available to support youth in crisis throughout the nation. As part of the campaign, individuals, organizations and communities across the nation are encouraged to work together to prevent youth homelessness.
In 2020, NRS and more than 120 partners and ten youth ambassadors from across the country hosted creative events, engaged with followers on social media platforms, arranged for landmarks to be lit up in green (the official color of NRPM), secured proclamations and distributed campaign materials to educate the public about youth homelessness. NRS organized national events, including a Twitter Chat, Lunch and Learn series, roundtable discussion about the importance of prevention programs, Wear Green Day and much more.
