People can experience homelessness for one night and raise charity funds at a sponsored sleep out.
YMCA Norfolk is holding its eighth annual Sleep Easy fundraiser on the Norwich School grounds from 7pm on March 9 until 7am the following morning.
It uses the event, part of the YMCA's national Sleep Easy Week (March 9 to 16), to tackle the problem of youth homelessness.
This year's Sleep Easy event will have a Star Wars theme and people taking part can dress up in Star Wars outfits.
Money raised will go towards accommodation, counselling support and positive activities to help young people reach their potential.
Tim Sweeting, YMCA Norfolk chief executive, said: 'We are calling on people to help us support young people - one night out can make a lifetime of difference.'
