The Homestretch Youth Activity Collection: On-Demand

The Homestretch Youth Activity Collection: On-Demand

The Homestretch Youth Action Toolkit is a collection inspired by the Independent Lens documentary film The Homestretch, about three homeless teens who brave Chicago winters, high school pressures, and life alone on the streets to build a brighter future. Against the odds, they recover from the trauma of abandonment to create new, surprising definitions of home. A youth action guide, discussion guide, and 5 short film modules provide background information on the film and youth homelessness, along with discussion questions, suggested activities, and additional resources to inspire action to support young people experiencing homelessness.
