Ticket to Ride is a collaborative fundraiser event formed by Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS), EndPoverty Edmonton, and hosted by the City of Edmonton Youth Council (CEYC), seeking to bring accessible transportation to Edmontonian youth at risk, and prove that as a community Edmonton is capable of aiding our youth in need.

As a primary youth voice in the EndPoverty Edmonton implementation roadmap being presented in late May of 2016, this event will be an important moment in the months leading towards the eventual council decision to accept or reject this strategy, and strong community involvement in Ticket to Ride will send a clear statement about the desire of Edmontonians for more accessible social support available to those in poverty.

We invite you to join us in reaching our fundraising goal of $10,000 at Ticket to Ride, as all proceeds will be used directly for the purchase of transportation passes to be distributed through YESS. This funding will enable youth at risk to to reliably get to work, housing, and community services, which empowers them to achieve their goals early in life. The event will conveniently start after working hours, so come and enjoy delicious snacks generously prepared by Renaissance Aiport Hotel as well as free non-alcoholic refreshments. Thank-you for your consideration in contributing to Ticket to Ride!
