Drafting Meaningful Policy Recommendations Aimed at Reducing Homelessness
Helping Youth Find the Housing Resources
Youssef recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience. Throughout his degree he was involved in several research projects focused on mental health and addiction. His experiences during these projects brought on his strong passion for advocacy in his community. This passion manifested itself in different forms of community involvement. From volunteering at his local community health centre and community youth centre, to fundraising for local non-profits. Youssef joined the Toronto Youth Cabinet last year and quickly became a part of the Budget working group; just in time to prepare a deputation to the budget committee about their proposed spending plans for the homeless community in Toronto. He strongly believes that housing is a basic human right, and that we should aim to inspire changes around housing policy on all levels of government.
